Falling Sky
6 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought this was a wonderful film.It brings out what really happens in life.Things that we don't ever think about that happens, but they do.Made me realize how lucky we really are, just to live ,because there is always someone out there that either has it just as bad as you,if not worse.This is a movie you have to watch till the very end to know you like it.If you just watch the first 20 minutes you might feel as if the film is a little boring and out of touch, but if you keep watching you'll enjoy. If your the type of person that has to be entertained throughout the whole movie,perhaps,this isn't the movie for you.Although, if you like things with meaning,you should definitely see.
