Inspiring and Moving
15 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a very interesting film. Not many stories deal with the issues of race, culture and family in a way that doesn't feel heavy-handed or like an indictment. This film did that in a way that actually made you think. It was thought provoking, moving and inspirational. Great performances by the actors. I did think the opening 20 minutes or so were a bit long. Once the film got going, however, it was riveting. Great editing, cinematography and direction. I would have loved to see a bit more of a relationship between Michael and Amy though. I think tightening the pace of the film will go a long way in making this an even more enjoyable film. I would definitely recommend it to others.
