Based on a true story, The Best of Enemies centers on the extraordinary relationship between Ann Atwater (Henson), a fearless and outspoken civil rights activist who faced off against C.P. 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.
