Highly recommended
2 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Very well done. A potentially titillating subject treated with honesty and grace. Informative and thought-provoking, as a good documentary should be. I am impressed with the production value, which is very high. Impressive for a relative novice film maker. I look forward to future films from her. The participants in the project are incredibly generous in sharing their stories. They are sympathetic without being pathetic. the film maker and participants could have dwelled on the callous and ignorant treatment they received from the medical establishment. It would have been understandable if the film became a way to exorcise such experiences. But they managed to convey some sense of this without it becoming the focus of the piece or coming off as a rant.
