Film: Nothing But a Man

Nothing But a Man, @BFI Southbank, Tue 16 & Sat 27 April.

“Roemer’s landmark movie about African-American lives in early 1960s Alabama finds an itinerant labourer (Dixon) falling for a preacher’s daughter (Lincoln), and striving to make a success of things despite familial obstacles and near-ubiquitous racism. It’s a tough but tender, wholly unsentimental account of a man determined to be true to himself, but having to work out exactly what that entails.”
