Great Urban Story
29 September 2010 | by See all my reviews

This is a great movie that depicts how in fact we are one way related to each other and affected differently (whether knowingly or not) by catastrophic events that occur.

We watched this movie as a family and everyone from my Spanish-only speaking husband, to our 17 yr old son and myself enjoyed this movie.

I think it is also a good movie that should be seen by educators. So many different angles and discussions can be sparked - from the need to know about current events, the challenges teenagers face, the effects and changes families go through - and so much more.

I truly recommend this movie. I hope to pick up the DVD.
