Wonderful "Must-See" Documentary
28 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What a loving respectful and clear-eyed gateway into an unfamiliar world. The kids are a revelation and a joy. Elaine's strength and kindness is heartening and wonderful to see and the openness, courage and honesty of the parents is deeply affecting. There is so much love in this film! The ease with which the families related to the camera says so much about the director. As mentioned previously, we do leave the theater with a feeling of connection and openness. What an inspiring, touching, funny, tender, raw, moving and heart-lifting journey. Brilliant and caring film-making. Thank you for making this film! Don't miss it!
