Excellent movie
31 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

This movie tells of the appalling plight of women in Asia. It was very eye opening and motivated me to take action. It is a documentary, but doesn't feel like it, as you hear many heart wrenching stories. However, the film does not stop there. It details what can be done and what is being done to give these people hope. Women have come so far in the past hundred years for equality, however, there are many places where they are not only treated inadequately, but are treated worse than animals. It is truly mind boggling to realize how much of this is still going on. It is a vivid reminder that there is still so much to be done to help the women and children in this world. The tale is masterfully told in vibrant detail. You can't help but have your heart ache for these lovely people. I think this is a movie that everyone should see. A great date movie if you want to get a glimpse into your partner's heart.
