Our next Rialto Recommends is the fourth film of Barry Levinson's "Baltimore Films" following Diner, Tin Men and Avalon. Released in the fall of 1999 LIBERTY HEIGHTS got lost in the glut of year end films but remains worth seeing. Baltimore, Fall 1954: Schools implement the new integration law. Ben finds the "colored" girl in his class cute - upsetting his Jewish mom and granny. Ben talks to her while his brother looks for his WASP dream girl. A moving film with moments of humor, Liberty Heights succeeds in capturing the feel of the '50s with great performances and sensitive direction. The Washington Post said LIBERTY HEIGHTS "Demonstrates what writer-director Levinson does best: evoke the sights, smells and atmosphere of his youth with intelligence, humor and a keen sense of social perspective." While the Los Angeles Times said "A mature, accomplished piece of work, both funny and deeply felt, personal cinema of the best kind...Levinson has made the memory film we always hoped he would." LIBERTY HEIGHTS is available to rent for a modest fee from Apple, Amazon, GooglePlay, YouTube, Vudu and others. All of Levinson's "Baltimore" films are special and worth checking it out but LIBERTY HEIGHTS is the one most people missed.
