Review by Charles Settles II (posted on 20-Feb-2005)

When I was about 9 years old I went with my family to Reno. We did an annual trip to Reno, where we stayed at the MGM Grand hotel. Well, this particular year Bright Road was playing at the theatre in the hotel. The movie took my breath away. Once it was over, I asked my mother if we could see it again. Dorothy Dandridge Played a stunning role as the school teacher. Harry Belafonte did nothing less than his best as the school principal. The story line was very heart felt. There were moments of sadness, joy and a hint of romance at different parts of the movie. I have been trying to find this on video or dvd, but no copy exists to my knowledge. I recommend this film to anyone who appreciates a great movie.
