Based on a true story, The Best of Enemies centers on the unlikely relationship between Ann Atwater, an outspoken civil rights activist, and C.P. Ellis, a local Ku Klux Klan leader who reluctantly co-chaired a community summit, battling over the desegregation of schools in Durham, North Carolina during the racially-charged summer of 1971.
During their weeks together, Ann and C.P form a bond that will last a lifetime as they realize that despite their many differences, they serve the same God and share the same dream for their families.
The film stars Academy Award-nominee, Taraji P. Henson who portrays “Ann Atwater,” and Academy Award-winner, Sam Rockwell who plays “C.P Ellis.”
