    An opportunity gap for kids educated at Dalton? Right . . . there is an opportunity gap, a big one, between the opportunities these boys had and those available to most black boys . . . or children of any other description, as well.

      I am very much looking forward to seeing this film because of the assumption that since these boys attended Dalton (you have to watch the film to find out whether they stayed at Dalton) that they somehow become immune to the way black boys and men are perceived and treated by many Americans.

        I agree, it's wrong to prejudge a film based on its description like the one in the article above; I merely point out that these boys appear to have had a head start opportunity via Dalton gigantically beyond those afforded to most African Americans, or anyone else, whether in the United States or abroad, so making viewers feel sorry for them is going to be really challenging for the filmmakers.
