Such a tender, tragic story. Though difficult, I blocked out the distasteful racial slurs, and pitied the ignorance of the period, cutting through that small minded bullsh*t to the gentle, textured marrow of a truly sweet love story, unfortunately mired in paralyzing fear. Lillian Gish was sublime. Joseph Turrin's score was very well done. I didn't know what to expect from Griffith. He showcased some heavy issues here: racism and interracial taboos; alcoholism and domestic abuse (boozing and bruising)... He was ahead of his time. I'm left with a memorable experience. FIVE STARS.
