This was one of the best movies of the decade as a drama. Well told, well written, beautifully acted, nice twist. An inspiring tale for many audiences and worth any persons time every second of the movie. The transformation of characters engages the audience as the script progresses. The martial arts in the scenes are well filmed and appear to be very realistic. Seeing a female Martial Arts Teacher is inspiring for women of all ages and breaking stereo-types on many levels of race, sex, and sexual orientation. The strength of the movie comes through on so many levels and is heartfelt. It is the type of movie that I would recommend to young and old alike.
