A young Tutsi woman and a young Hutu man fall in love amidst chaos; a soldier struggles to foster a greater good while absent from her family; and a priest grapples with his faith in the face of unspeakable horror.
I just saw this movie the acting was superb and genuine,Sophie Okonedo should have been nominated for another Oscar for her performance,the hurt resonating from this movie was a shocker especially when your family turns against you because of a inhumane system of law,Sam Neill played his part well too well his character was mean and bigoted and hypocritical,the real Sandra Laing gets much respect from me to persevere the way she did during her hardship!!Sandra is a Black Woman who born into a white family that was not her fault but the SOUTH AFRIKAANER gov. ridiculed her and her family causing a rift that won't heal anytime soon for her.
