Movie of the Day 6.22

Team Stardust
June 22, 2020

Another Monday, another theme! It’s “Timely Classics” week, so bring on the classic films with storylines still relevant to what we’re experiencing in this day and age.

Today’s film is a 1967 mystery drama that won 5 Academy Awards, including Best Picture. Its central character, Virgil Tibbs, is a Black police detective who becomes involved in a murder investigation in small-town Sparta, Mississippi. The film looks closely at racism, police brutality, and bigotry in a way that is unfortunately still relevant today.

Today’s film was chosen by our pals @TheReelRejects. Watch their reaction here to find out today’s Movie of the Day!
