Native Son | 1986
In Chicago during the Depression, an African-American man named Bigger Thomas is trying to improve his station in life through his job as chauffeur to a weathly white family. In addition to bossing Bigger around, the family's daugther also routinely make advances to him. One evening when she is drunkenly flirting with him in her bedroom, the girl's blind mother comes into the room, and Bigger, sure that he will be accused of rape, attempts to stiffle the girl, accidentally killing her. Panicked, Bigger hides her body and claims that she was kidnapped by her boyfriend, a communist activist. But Bigger is charged with the murder and ultimately executed.
