Wasn't sure what to expect going in. The story is absolutely engrossing, and you are immediately drawn in. Excellent movie. Highly recommend.
While the topic of this film can be difficult, it was a highly recommended movie. The story, locations, and acting are top-notch. Take the time to see this film, you won't regret it.
Uncompromising and fearless. Great performances from the child actors. That final shot is one for the history books.
The child actors are fantastic. Good story. Well written and tugs at the heartstrings. A solid, very enjoyable movie.
