The Best Of Enemies

Please Note: This film is no longer showing at Railroad Square Cinema

Based on an amazing true story, THE BEST OF ENEMIES centers on the unlikely relationship between Ann Atwater (Taraji P. Henson, BENJAMIN BUTTON, HIDDEN FIGURES), an outspoken civil rights activist, and C.P. Ellis (Sam Rockwell, THREE BILLBOARDS, VICE), a local Ku Klux Klan leader who reluctantly co-chaired a community summit, battling over the desegregation of schools in Durham, North Carolina during the racially charged summer of 1971. The incredible events that unfolded would change Durham, and the lives of Atwater and Ellis forever. “For a true-ish story of racial animus, bone-deep prejudice and the American South in the civil rights era, it’s a better, more nuanced and more interesting feel-good movie than a certain, recent, less interesting Best Picture Academy Award winner we could mention” —Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune. PG-13. 133 Min.
