Great movie, Great story, Great actors and it is non-fiction!
4 June 2000 | by See all my reviews

This really is one of the greatest movies there are. A movie with depth, which touches your soul. This story makes you wandering. Only a few decades ago a part of America was still living in the Middle Ages. A few people can make a change. I hope the present movies will become more like this one, but probably the movies nowadays are a reflection of our more and more superficial society. But I am an optimist.......
