Boycott

Available on iTunes, HBO, Prime Video, HBO GO, Hulu, HBO NOW
Using an innovative fusion of scripted scenes with real and recreated documentary footage, this powerful film vividly evokes the tension, energy and excitement of a unique episode in American history: the moment the Civil Rights movement found its leader in Martin Luther King Jr. In 1955, America's eyes were blind to oppression and closed to change...and a solitary act of courage grew into a movement. The Montgomery Bus Boycott--launched when a black woman named Rosa Parks was arrested for sitting in the "whites only" section of a bus--ushered in the modern-day Civil Rights movement and introduced the world to a brave new leader.
Starring Jeffrey Wright, Terrence Howard, Carmen Ejogo
