Given that each of the women wore a single dress, day in and day out, in a tropical climate for three years straight, the fabric of their clothing would have disintegrated long before that was finally depicted in the film.

I happened upon this film on HBO while flipping channels. I became engrossed at the point where the women were taken to the internment camp. I had no interest whatsoever to see this film in the theaters because the subject matter seemed too depressing (and it is!), but it is so well acted and such an intense story, that I would highly recommend it.
