what year was this suppose to take place ??


Seems as if the movie was trying to disguise the year. Was it the sixties ?? At least give us a reference point.

The actual story written by James Baldwin was supposed to take place in 1974 according to Wikipedia. But the movie looks like late 50s or just 50s to me via the trailer
