Something The Lord Made
Starring: Alan Rickman, Mos Def, Kyra Sedgwick
Directed By: Joseph Sargent
Genre: Drama

Two men - one a wealthy white chief surgeon, the other a poor black laboratory technician, achieve a monumental medical breakthrough that earns one accolades and the other, a painful lesson in racism and unequal opportunity. Working in 1940s Baltimore on an unprecedented technique for performing heart surgery on "blue babies", Dr. Alfred Blalock (Rickman) and lab tech Vivien Thomas (Def) form an impressive team. But even as the two embark on a new field of medicine, saving thousands of lives in the process, social pressures threaten to undermine their collaboration and tear their friendship apart.
