Reality... with honesty over 30+ years
12 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

True,the film doesn't really engage until you are 55% into it, but then, like the tumblers to the key, you cannot turn away.

Criticism? My wife (for whom English is her second language) asked for subtitles for the first film. It was difficult for me to follow and subtitles would have let me focus on the visual and fill in the blanks where I could not understand.

I cannot sing enough praises for Gillian Armstrong who had the foresight to structure the series from the second chapter (age 18) to most recent (age 47). She secured an agreement of honesty from them and then told their stories with grace.

A season's worth of TV reality shows does not have the kind of heart these stories do and you'll smile for days.
