Directed by Edward Zwick and starred by Matthew Broderick one of the most popular teen actors of the time, Glory would seem an unlikely choice for both. Robert Shaw (Matthew Broderick) volunteered to be in charge of an all Black team of soldiers in Massachusetts during the Civil War in the 1860s. Shaw deals with racism toward his soldiers and also tries to overcome the obstacles and attitudes of some of his men.

In Glory, the team of soldiers at the 54th Infantry over which Shaw is responsible is comprised of runaway slaves that he turns into war fighting machines. Among the men, are two of his best friends but Shaw's attitude towards his friends is a tough as with everyone else. Denzel Washington as Pvt. Trip and Morgan Freeman as Sgt. Major John Rawlins both give stellar performances.

This movie, as it happens with many other of the decade is considered one of the top movies of all times.
