I thought this film was excellent. I think it was great for Eve Ensler
to allow and encourage these women to openly express themselves in a
non-violent, positive and honest way. The only woman whom I found to be
a total phony was Pamela Smart. She is the infamous New Hampshire
seductress husband killer who got her teen lover to do her dirty work
for her. When she read she took no responsibility for her actions. She
told the same story she's been offering up for the last 14 years. "It
was not my fault, i'm innocent, it was my co-defendants". Does this
The thing I thought was really cool about it was that Eve Ensler, my
favorite female playwright was the workshop leader. Also, another great
thing was that actors, Glenn Close, Rosie Perez, Marisa Tomei,
Maryalice and Hazelle Goodman gave excellent Broadway like
performances. Not only did I like their performances but I also liked
the discussion sessions in-between.
I thought that the women being able to express themselves this way was
great. The reason I think this is because most of them have not done
many positive things in their in lives but this is one that they have
done. I thought the "Puppy Behind Bars" program was cool. It must be
nice to train these guard dogs for needy people and give back.
I give this movie a 10 stars out of 10. I liked it so much that I
bought my own DVD of it. I think the interview with Eve Ensler and
Judith Katz was very cool and informing. I also like the full-length
performances by the featured actors, because although I like hearing
excerpts of things, I do like to hear them in whole too. "Thanks, Eve
