I love this film, but my view is skewed. The emotional link for those of us in recovery is deep, and the effect of watching it reminded me of visiting Akron for AA "Founder's Day"; not unlike a pilgrimage. The footage and photos I've never seen before of these historical figures were riveting. The music, stunning. The whole thing was well thought out, sequenced, and presented, and gave me a few surprises. The dramatized segments were effective, with excellently done costumes, hair, sets, and lighting. I am, however, a stickler for continuity and was disappointed (like nails on a chalkboard disappointed) in the wrong decade chairs used for the banquet meetings, not to mention the plastic name tag holders that weren't in common usage back then. That's my only beef with this otherwise well presented piece. I laughed and I cried. Thanks so much for this important work.
