We now have our first glimpse of "The Great Debaters," which was made in Mansfield and northwest Louisiana during the summer. It's getting a Christmas Day release and Yahoo.com has its first trailer. Click here to see it.
What do you think? What do you recognize? It's the Weinstein Co.'s unofficial Oscar hopeful. Does it have a shot?
Chris Jay of the Robinson Film Center pushed me to the trailer and said, "It could be the critical and financial sucess that Shreveport has been hoping for."
Chris obviously forgot "Factory Girl." :)
