The American Experience on Film Blogathon – Day One

We have a nice selection of posts for the first day of The American Experience on Film Blogathon:

If stories about Cold War America are your jam, Realweegiemidget Reviews suggests becoming as obsessed as she is with the TV show The Americans.

MovieRob finds the story of future American U.S. Senator John McCain in Faith of My Fathers compelling even though the film could have been better executed.

Wolffian Classic Movies Digest strongly recommends Take a Giant Step, a 1950s coming of age film that also studies racism in a newly desegregated America.

The Stop Button finds parts of Barry Levinson’s nostalgic look at an upwardly-mobile Jewish family in Avalon amazing, though it disappoints with its ending.

That’s it for today! Come back for more tomorrow!
