I think 'High Lonesome' must have been made for TV. The plot is a bit sugary though I think how it portrays the attitude of white people to blacks in 1930s America pretty authentic. Joseph Mazzello is, of course, excellent as the tough kid the black man takes under his wing despite his high pitched voice. The ending is rather contrived I think as I doubt any black man would be allowed to adopt white children at that time. Good movie that brings a tear to the eye.
