Two-time Academy Award(R) winner Denzel Washington ("American Gangster") directs and stars with Academy Award(R) winner Forest Whitaker ("Last King Of Scotland") in this "important and deeply inspiring page from the not-so-distant past" (Richard Roeper, At the Movies with Ebert and Roeper). Inspired by a true story, Washington shines as a brilliant but politically radical debate team coach who uses the power of words to transform a group of underdog African American college students into an historical powerhouse that took on the Harvard elite. Featuring a superb cast of rising young actors, "'The Great Debaters' is marvelous entertainment that you should not miss" (Andrew Sarris, The New York Observer).

Deleted Scenes, Subtitles: Spanish.

"The Great Debaters: An historical perspective"; "That's What My Baby Likes" music video; "My Soul Is a Witness" Music Video.

This movie is one of, if not, the best movie I have ever seen. It's a thrill ride of emotions. Denzel and Forest make an almost irresistable combination to make this film spectacular. It is a great source of history as well. Take the time to watch this movie, and I know that you will not be dissapointed.

This was a very good movie!! The acting was excellent and James Farmer, Jr. (one of the debaters) was a figther for equal justice. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for good, well acted, entertaining drama! Of course I just Love Denzel and will watch just about anything he is in. The other actors were extremely good, too. This is well worth buying, especially since there are not many good movies being made today. But this one IS a keeper.

The dvd was in great condition. I know in shipping Walmart give a date for deliveries at stores but in tracking this movie I notice it sat in Louisville, KY for over four days which was too long of a layover. Hopefully this can change for store deliveries otherwise I guess paying for shipping would be better. I would recommend the movie to a friend but not the shipping process.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

I teach an effective speaking class at a local technical college and one of the speeches I have planned is a debate. I had seen this movie (The Great Debaters) previously and thought it would provide a good visual on the preparation and presentation of debates. Also, it doesn't hurt that the movie stars Denzel Washington.
