Inspiring and thought provoking
19 February 2010 | by (caribbean) – See all my reviews

This film and Ms. MacLaine's humanitarian concerns were (at the risk of being ridiculed) an attempt to empower and enlighten us from the 20th century. To save us from ourselves and to remind us of our connections to one another. A true pioneer in an era lost to greed and capitalism. Philosophers as early as 300 BC understood the force of God in all of us. That goodness and love can overcome bad and evil. This film inspired me to look beyond the injustices I incurred as child. To look at the big picture and to understand that everything we do must be for the good of future generations. That mankind's journey and survival depends on a openness of mind and the foresight to stand together as one against all diversity even at the risk of being ridiculed and dangling "out on a limb".
