Storyline

Ezra is the first film to give an African perspective on the disturbing phenomenon of abducting child soldiers into the continent's recent civil wars. Ezra is structured around the week-long questioning of a 16 year old boy, Ezra, before a version of the Truth and Reconciliation Commissions, created in Sierra Leone in 2002 in the wake of its decade long civil war. This hearing is then inter-cut with chronological flashbacks to pivotal moments during Ezra's ten years in the rebel faction which made him who he is. Written by California Newsreel

Worst movie ever at Sundance!
17 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the worst film I've ever seen at Sundance and I'm going each year. Really I don't understand why this film had an award. It's really lame and when I saw it at the festival, half the people at the festival was yawning and leaving. The acting was poor and the directing was really terrible. What a waste. I can't believe why this film on the IMDb got a 9!

You just wonder who could produce this film and finance it. It's a joke. I think Sundance went really down. I think years ago this film would not been selected.

I doubt this movie will ever hit the big screen, it's not commercial enough. If you want to see a great film, see the film with Forest Whitaker! That's great acting and film-making! Well, don't waste your time on this one!
