Saw an advance screening of this. Really Cool.
23 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw an advance screening of this. I had remembered Duane Baughman producing a play on Robert Kennedy that was surprisingly good, so I checked it out.

There are no spoilers in these comments:

As a typical American unaware of most of what goes on in other parts of the world, I knew almost nothing about Benazir Bhutto. This is a fascinating story not just about her life as a woman in power in a Muslim extremist society, but her entire family history and the history of Pakistan play roles in this film and it's truly engrossing. I highly recommend it.
