Good movie
20 May 2007 | by (Hollywood) – See all my reviews

I was captivated by these peoples lives. We got to hear there stories, meet there families, and also the staff at the correctional facility's. I wish more movies were like this. This is real life. These are real people. Not all documentary's are good, but I was happily surprised by this one. It was sad, yes, but I also think it is something everyone should see. People struggle, it is hard to survive, some people make it, others don't. I also really enjoyed the commentary on the DVD. I could've watched more bonus features, etc. on this movie since I liked it so much. I kind of wish it was longer, although it did end at an appropriate time, I was just so deep into there lives. Oh, and Megan really is charismatic.
