If this movie doesn't touch every sentimental nerve in your body and reach to the core of your soul, you are not human.
This movie will touch your heart in places you never knew existed. Each of us has seen those movies that reach deep within and cause the light tear to seep out of corner of our eyes and we quickly wipe it away and hope no one sees us.

I do not know how or what the so called self critics are seeing, but I don't think it's the same movie I just finished watching. Yes it's a little slow, but its real . This is a human in tune with what he wants and doesn't let ANYTHING stop him from completing what he started.
It's a Shakespeare tragedy in today's society. A movie you should definitely see.
9 out of 10.
