Cry, the Beloved Country (1995)

A South-African preacher goes to search for his wayward son who has committed a crime in the big city.
Intense drama about guilt and forgiveness, wonderfully photographed in South African landscapes and with an admirable performance by James Earl Jones, but the sententiousness of the dialogues are hard to get used to.

Maltin***: "Heartrending story chronicles racial divisiveness (and its roots) in South Africa without resorting to preachiness."
