What is the movie Glory about?
Telling the tale of the first formal unit to be entirely made up of African-American men during the Civil War, Edward Zwick’s 1989 war drama “Glory” was a modest commercial success, but a major critical one. It also won Denzel Washington an Academy Award for the best supporting role. The story is told from the perspective of Colonel Robert Shaw (Mathew Broderick), the white commander of the all-black unit that distinguished itself for their heroic efforts during the war. Captain Robert Shaw comes home to Boston after being wounded in the Civil War. There he is offered a promotion to the rank of colonel if he accepts to command the 54th Massachusetts Volunteer infantry, the first all-black regiment in the Union Army. Shaw accepts, and the volunteers are soon flooding in. They begin the arduous process of training, but Shaw quickly realizes that racism isn’t reserved for the Confederate troops, and that it is very much present in the union ranks as well. He stands up for his men, earning their respect in the process. Once their training is complete, Shaw hopes to lead his men into battle, but the only assignments they get consist of hard manual labor. Finally, when they get a chance to fight, Shaw’s troops pull off an impressive victory. Then they are ordered to take part in the siege of the seemingly impenetrable Morris Island fort, the toughest challenge Shaw and his men have to face.

I first saw this film a few years after it was released, and every few years since. It never fails to draw me in almost immediately. I feel so connected to the characters. There is one scene, however, that always stays with me long after. I'm talking about Denzel and the single tear. It's a terrific lesson for film producers and directors on what a gut-wrenching scene really is. No explosions, no gore, no frantic cutting with one-second shots, not even any dialogue. Just one close up and one reaction shot, yet so much power! It's not possible to watch that scene and not feel his pain. It is also so wonderful to see a film with a great ensemble cast of actors with many, at that time, who were right on the verge of stardom.
