Not reviewed at press time. Based on a 1978 short story by William Styron and adapted for the screen and directed by his daughter, Shadrach is a coming-of-age tale about a 10-year-old boy in 1935 Virginia. Life, death, slavery, and financial circumstances are examined in the context of the story about the 99-year-old ex-slave named Shadrach who has returned to his old plantation home (now farmed by a cast-against-type Harvey Keitel and Andie MacDowell) to be buried.
