Focus http://www.amazon.com/Focus-William-H-Macy/dp/B00005V1XK is a film adaptation of a very powerful and disturbing novel, that was written by the late Playwright Arthur Miller. http://www.nytimes.com/2005/02/11/theater/newsandfeatures/11cnd-miller.html It tells the story of a small American community, that on the surface appears 'normal', until the underlying 'reality' is slowly revealed. As urgent and relevant now, as it was then. http://www.nydailynews.com/opinions/2010/11/07/2010-11-07_how_segregation_plagues_bloombergs_new_york_black_white_and_wrong_all_over.html The film stars William H. Macy, Laura Dern, David Paymer and 'Meatloaf' Aday. It appears that Arthur Miller thought long and hard while writing this story. And it's ultimate conclusion shows true American Patriotism at it's best.
Very Highly Recommended Viewing.
For very informative and enlightening additional reading, 'Double Victory: A Multicultural History of America in World War II' by the late History Professor Ronald Takaki. http://www.hachettebookgroup.com/books_9780316831567.htm
