Beating Justice: The Martin Lee Anderson Story (4 Stars) Perhaps the most striking component of this largely student-driven documentary project from Florida State University professor Dr. Andy Opel, is how much it echoes the same law-enforcement racial divide playing out this year with Trayvon Martin in Sanford. Martin Lee Anderson was just 14 when, after entering one of the state's notorious “boot camps” for teens in January 2006, he was caught dying on videotape surrounded by seven juvenile justice guards and a nurse. Attorney Benjamin Crump – currently representing the Martin family – carries the emotional narrative (along with student activists and Rev. Al Sharpton), reminding viewers that history, especially in Florida, is doomed to repeat when there is no justice. – BM (12:30 p.m. at Regal Winter Park)
