Ellis (Rockwell), a local Ku Klux Klan leader, to blaze the way for school desegregation in Durham, North Carolina, in 1971.

Ratings and Reviews
Critics Consensus: The Best of Enemies has the best of intentions, but they're derailed by a problematic perspective and a disappointing lack of insight.
Well-intentioned but one-sided race drama has iffy messages.
