Caleb Landry Jones,
Langston Whitfield is a Washington Post journalist. His editor provocatively sends him to South Africa to cover the Truth and Reconciliation Commission hearings, in which the perpetrators of murder and torture on both sides during Apartheid are invited to come forward and confront their victims. By telling the unvarnished truth and expressing contrition, they may be granted amnesty. Can the deep wounds of Apartheid be healed through reconciliation? Langston is deeply skeptical. He tracks down Colonel De Jager, the most notorious torturer in the South African Police and tries to penetrate the mind of a monster, an experience that obliges him to confront his own demons. Anna Malan is an Afrikaans poet who is covering the hearings for radio. As a white South African, she is shattered by the accounts of the cruelty and depravity committed by her fellow countrymen. Anna and Langston must question their sense of identity. Where do they each belong? How responsible are they for what is done ...Written by
The exterior scenes and shots of the TRC hearings (for instance where Anna (Juliette Binoche) and Dumi (Menzi Ngubane) first meet) were shot on the forecourt of the South African Museum in the Company Gardens in Cape Town's city center. At least some of the internal scenes were shot in the Centre for the Book, which is down the road from the Museum and has curving corridors. See more »

I watched this film with 2 buddies of mine. One was a Native South African, the other is engaged to one, and I studied for a year in Cape Town.
I was not the most spectacular film in the world, but it did contain truth. It told a worthwhile story that shouldn't be forgotten. It was not entertainment, but a captivating lesson in history.
My friends and I are normal. We are not emotionally unstable, nor are we socially inept. We cried so hard during this movie that when the credits began rolling people asked us if we were OK. Not everyone was affected the way we were. I suppose that we just miss Africa.
If you're into this sort of movie, it's worth the rental.
