What a woman she was! Let's start off with good points. I think this movie
had a great cast. I think everyone was perfect. The problem probably comes
with the filmmakers being American. I'm an American so I think I'm qualified
to say this. Sometimes you need to be from the same culture to understand
subtle and cultural things that are not evident to the naked eye so to
speak. The movie somehow doesn't delve deep enough for us to understand why
Guerin takes these incredible risks. Perhaps we should have learned more
about her background to understand this unflinching courage she had. It may
have also been beneficial to make the underworld figures she encounters more
layered. Either way, it is a good introductory film to this incredible
woman. Perhaps a homespun filmmaker can make another movie about her. I
reiterate that I thought the casting was terrific! Cate Blanchett is one in
a million. I felt her performance was oscar caliber.
