2nd time I cried and even harder
20 November 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's not a wonder I waited another 3 years to watch this movie a 2nd time. I felt a song in my heart and a grace. I am grateful for DNA evidence in my time as it has solved more crimes that it did not previously. This is the kind of movie one should watch with someone they love. "The work of time and effort in it's involvement of the truth" for what it's worth. If there was a God, I couldn't ever understand why suffering should be mentioned for the one who doesn't deserve to? The facts of life are important in fairness and justice and equivalent is the truth. This film teaches us the sincere attitude toward the truth. It is not fearful but rather the pursuit of what is fair in feeling, yet fact and respectably, for the people. This film admires forthright the spirit. This is a a film of justice and honorable of the pursuit of the answers. We will all get there. The truth is simply the fact.
