Show Me a Hero

#1 Post by Luke M » Thu Aug 27, 2015 8:10 pm

I've been really enjoying David Simon's new miniseries "Show Me A Hero". Oscar Isaac is a joy to watch.

Here's the description from wikipedia:
Show Me a Hero is an American miniseries based on the 1999 nonfiction book of the same name by former New York Times writer, Lisa Belkin. The book details a white middle-class neighborhood's resistance to a federally-mandated public housing development in Yonkers, New York, and how these tensions affected the city as a whole. The miniseries was written by David Simon and journalist William F. Zorzi – whom Simon worked with at The Baltimore Sun and on The Wire. It was directed by Paul Haggis.

You might want to spoiler tag those last two words!
