It’s a shame that in plenty of areas in America, that perspective remains virtually unchanged.
AfterElton also speaks with Glover about how he felt star Aidan Quinn’s career was affected by taking on such a controversial role: “Only positively, that’s all I could guess. It was such a brilliant performance, and such a great role. It showed what a great actor he is.”
And still today, Quinn gushes about the film in the DVD commentary: “People always ask me, ‘Gosh, wasn’t that a brave choice for you to do that.’ No! It wasn’t at all. To me, it wasn’t brave because it was something I was invested in and cared about. Number two, it was with phenomenal actors who I had always loved. And three, it was a beautiful script and it was a great part, and I was well paid! What’s so brave? There’s nothing brave about it!”
