9 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched it and I watched people watching this movie and it was so gripping that I had to have a supply of tissue with me. some like the fluffy always feel good movies that aren't realistic but for those that like the movies that show human feelings and responses?

remember schindler's list? It pulled at your soul. you won't be able to watch this without feeling the same.

I'm not sure words can really describe how I felt watching the scenes played out.

ever felt like you were watching a movie and yet something you know from personal experience has happened? the vulnerability and introspect you might get because you're hoping no one catches on you know how the person feels because you were in their shoes?

admit it or not, this is one of those movies that a person can tell that not only an experience of your own is involved but someone behind the scenes has either the talent to tap into that range of feeling or has experienced or been directly involved with someone that has personally gone through that same lesson in life.

it's that powerful.
