The Human Stain
Interesting movie based on a book. Wentworth Miller plays young Silk, a young man who was so light that he could pass for white, and that is exactly what he did back during WWII. He married a white woman, and whenever he went to see his Black family he never took her. Now as he got older, he became a professor played later by Anthony Hopkins, who continued to pass for white, until one day in a classroom he made a racial slur that got him ousted. The story is unique, and I believe as we try to hide things our past usually pops up.
