Is there something about The Best of Enemies (STX, 4.5) that doesn’t quite work or…? I’m just not sensing any special current or exceptional energy. No screening invites from Sunshine Sachs, no Sundance Film Festival showings, no advance buzz to speak of. Based on Osha Gray Davidson‘s “The Best of Enemies: Race and Redemption in the New South”, it’s about some kind of mano e mano that led to a rapproachment between civil rights activist Ann Atwater (Taraji P. Henson) and Ku Klux Klan leader C.P. Ellis (Sam Rockwell) in 1971. Sorry but I’m sensing a disturbance in the force. A liberal do-goody vibe.
