Liberty Heights: Friday  November 19, 1999

The sign at the exclusive country club reads "No Jews, Dogs or Coloreds Allowed," keeping Ben and his curious friends, Sheldon (EVAN NEUMANN) and Murray (GERRY ROSENTHAL), on the other side of the fence because they’re Jewish. Soon after, Ben’s high-school class integrates its first black student, a self-assured young lady named Sylvia (REBEKAH JOHNSON). Ben is irresistibly attracted to her and, although Sylvia’s father, a doctor, forbids them to meet socially, the two become very close. Ben and Sylvia explore their religious, social and racial differences and begin to break down social rules and stereotypes. 1999 Warner Bros.

When I saw Liberty Heights I was amazed at the way my own childhood was almost identical. At first I thought Barry Levinson knew my mother. Carolyn Murphy was really great in her debut roll. Definetly the best of the three in the series.

The picture was great for me because I must have seen my mother 100 times in this film. I thought Carplyn Murphy in he first film role was absoutly delicious in the roll of Dubbie.the entire cast was really fabulous and the camera work was very good.Anybody he wants to see a nice movie this is the one!!!!!!

Loved it. Funny, sad, charming, touching, insightful, all the right things. A rare movie that is both pleasing to watch and has a good story. The acting was outstanding without exception.
