Couldn't stop thinking about it
12 July 2007 | by See all my reviews

I loved this movie. Not that it's an easy film to watch - some parts were a little painful to experience. But I couldn't stop thinking about it for the next few days. Very few movies do this for me (Million Dollar Baby comes to mind). The idea that opposing sides of an extreme situation could both be so believable and relatable, that's the genius of this film in my opinion. I think if I had rated it right after I saw it, I probably would have given it 9 stars. But that wouldn't be right, because it doesn't take into consideration the impact it had on me. I hope it gets picked up because I want to take my two teenagers. It's one of those few thoughtful films that everyone should see.
