Welcome to Leith

welcome to leithA gripping documentary, Welcome to Leith focuses on a small town in North Dakota, Leith: population 24. A nationally known white supremacist comes to town and begins buying up property. His goal is to take over the town. What happens when hatred comes to an otherwise sleepy town? People fight back. Welcome to Leith provides a fascinating look at what it takes to keep hatred and violence out and how difficult it can be to win these battles. Bonus points for using several staff members of the Southern Poverty Law Center who do their job so well. Kudos to filmmakers Michael Beach Nichols and Christopher K. Walker for tackling such a difficult topic and allowing the ending to simply be. 3.5 out of 5.
