An Honest and Moving Film!
19 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had the pleasure of watching Three Veils at the NJ Film Festival at Rutgers University and the movie went beyond my expectations. Each girl's story was handled with sensitivity and all three were woven together seamlessly within the story. The director did a fantastic job showing us all three girls's perspectives and how particular scenarios affected them all differently.

The subject matter is so brave and sends a powerful message, without being preachy or pretentious. The issues the girls deal with in this film are very relevant to what's happening in the world today, and it's sad that people don't want to acknowledge or accept that. Hats off to Rolla Selbak and the brilliant cast for bringing these important issues to the limelight.

Please, please, PLEASE see this film if you have the opportunity. It should be seen by all!
