A Bold, Special Film
1 August 2013 | by SheepdogDGSee all my reviews

In the company of "Capturing the Friedman's," this is a film that could never be repeated. And let's hope there are no more opportunities to do so in the future.

My heart was pounding the entire time I watched this film. I felt for both women, and I awaited passions to boil over with the breath hanging in my throat. Surely, these are two women seeking some sense of resolution or closure, but are they seeking it from one another?

If you haven't already viewed this film, I recommend "Schindler's List" and "Hitler's Children" as prerequisites. They will help frame the content that you will be witnessing in this film.
