(Ben Lyon, E!)
Miracle at St. Anna comes from the true story of four African American soldiers stationed in German-occupied Italy during World War II. Separated from their unit and trapped behind Nazi lines, ranking officer Aubrey Stamps (Derek Luke), hot-headed Bishop Cummings (Michael Ealy), radioman Hector Negron (Laz Alonso) and gentle giant Sam Train (Omar Benson Miller) survive a shocking massacre, rescuing a young Italian boy in the process. The five make their way to the nearest village, where they join forces with the local opposition, risking their lives and gathering intelligence for a nation that considers them second-class citizens.
An inspirational look at the heroic exploits of the all-black 92nd Buffalo Soldier Division of the U.S. Army, Miracle at St. Anna boasts a superb cast headlined by Derek Luke (Definitely, Maybe, Lions for Lambs), Michael Ealy (Barbershop 2: Back in Business, 2 Fast, 2 Furious), Laz Alonso (Stomp the Yard, This Christmas) and Omar Benson Miller (Things We Lost in the Fire, 8 Mile). The film also stars John Turturro (You Don’t Mess with the Zohan, Transformers), Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Brick, The Lookout), John Leguizamo (Righteous Kill, The Happening), Kerry Washington (Ray, The Last King of Scotland) and D.B. Sweeney (Jericho, Stiletto).
