BRAVO ! This film was not only educational and brow-raising, but also depicted the power of choice in how we perceive things. There are so many deeper levels of meaning in this film, true pearls of wisdom throughout. There are so many metaphors for life in this documentary. Do we really need to conform in life in order to 'make it'? How do you define success? Are you living an authentic life or giving up on what you
love because of the way you think it's supposed to look? Or worse, what others tell you how it's supposed to look/be? Can you see the opportunity in the perceived problem? You need not be a musician to adore this film.
