The documentary is a perfect blend of humor and serious commentary on life, love, and growing up. Though told through the lens of one red-headed man, the lessons and values are universal. The film includes several serious themes, such as bullying, but weaves them all into the story without being abrupt or angry. The man on the street style-interviews are incredible and it is revealing to see what some people are willing to share on camera. I watched the film with my weekly movie group and everyone loved it, which is rare with this group. I highly recommend this movie and cannot wait to see what the director's next project is.
