This film tells the story of the 54th Regiment Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry, black soldiers led by white officers who proved their mettle fighting some of the bloodiest battles in the Civil War. Matthew Broderick plays Robert Gould Shaw, the well-born son of Massachusetts abolitionists asked to display the courage of his convictions when he is assigned leadership of the new regiment. Morgan Freeman is a Northern gravedigger who trades his shovel for a rifle; Denzel Washington won the Best Supporting Actor Oscar® for his portrayal of an escaped Southern slave with an equally fiery wit and temper. DIR Edward Zwick; SCR Kevin Jarre, from Robert Gould Shaw's letters and the books "Lay This Laurel" by Lincoln Kirstein and "One Gallant Rush" by Peter Burchard; PROD Freddie Fields. U.S., 1989, color, 122 min. RATED R
