One of the 10 best films I have ever seen.
23 October 2003 | by (Southern California) – See all my reviews

This film was inspiring, well acted, and one of the best written screenplays I have ever, ever had the pleasure to take in. Not for those into just action, or humor, or violence. If you are into brave honest portrayals of people struggling to be people, do yourself a favor and find this film. This is the first film I have ever posted to this site about.
