The child actors are fantastic. Good story. Well written and tugs at the heartstrings. A solid, very enjoyable movie.

this was one of the most beautiful film experiences i have ever had. i sobbed at the end. you feel the passion, the fearlessness. the child actors, especially little Shine, astonish. beautiful, breathtaking. the horror elements feel contrived, and in the end they feel a little shallow, but the crushing hopelessness of life in a place like where these kids grow up is overwhelming, as do those brief unadulterated moments of joy the kids enjoy.
