Storyline

Well worth to watch
27 August 2005 | by See all my reviews

This is a truly good movie. It has managed to captured the event and the people in a special way. The acting and directing are good and the story is well written. There is a really good score by Mark Snow too in there, but at the most intense scenes there are no music at all. I believe that it was a very good thing to cut the music as the silence made the scenes more dramatic then any musical score would.

If you are a parent I believe this movie would be much harder to watch then if you're not. However, the story is touching no matter what. I'm no parent nor a very sentimental guy, but I find this movie very touching. The way people can care and the way anything is possible if you just want it bad enough.

The movie brings up several interesting things. Among them the power of the media. It was the media who made this story, and so they could have turned it in any direction, really. It was the media who made people care.

If you get the chance don't let this movie go unseen. Espesially if you're a parent.
