"A Time to kill is a movie for everyone tohate or love. There is a handsome white lawyer(Jake) who risk eveything to save a black man, who has taken the law into his own hands by avenging's his daughter's brutal beating and rape. We see a politically motivated NAACP who uses this tradegy for its own purposes. There is the Klu Klux Klan which preaches its doctrine of hate. The ambitious district attorney who uses the trail as a stepping stone to the governor's mansion. "A Time to Kill immerse itself into the intense emotions that are involved in hatred. A time to kill was both dramatic and accurate in its deception of a small southern community. Throughtout the movie is the presence of the KKK, as an antagonistic force and blind hate that existed in the form of racism in Mississippi at the time. On the other hand, the NAACP's presence in opposition to the kkk is significant, but its true nature and power was not shown; the movie focuses on the interracial relationship and irs impact in a southern society, in which equality is undefined. This movie faces segregation, displaying its psychological effects on a society of the south and its judicial system. After the civil right movement forty somenthing years ago made the first steps towards racial equality, segregation remains a part of humanity that we must face. "A Time to Kill" show us a remainder that in governing our country, and ultimately in living our lives, we must look past race, and color and seek equality in its purest form. If we can't do this in the present, there is no hope for the future.
