This film might have escaped my attention if Matt Zoller Seitz hadn't raved about it this past summer. It is about 28 anti-war activists (most of them clergy members) who were busted (because of an informant within their midst) of breaking into the Camden NJ draft board with the intent of destroying documents in 1971.
The documentary tells the story of the ensuing trial, the anger at their friend who betrayed them, and eventual forgiveness. It is a standard documentary, no frills, but it was perfect for TV viewing. Not sure I would have been super happy to throw down 11 bucks for it but I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who has an interest in the subject.
