Liberty Heights

This Barry Levinson movie deals with anti-semitism, raciscm and growing up in Baltimore. Part of his Baltimore trilogy, actually this is the fourth film of his set in Baltimore, not exactly a trilogy. I have seen one of the other three, The Diner, awhile back. Liberty Heights is seen thru' the eyes and ears of baby boomer generation, right after the war, at the time when other movements like civil rights were coming to the forefront. If you love those tales where adults narrate their stories while they were kids or while growing up, you'll like this one.
