Looking For Angelina
5 April 2006 | by toocheepuSee all my reviews

This film was a pleasure to watch and I feel much more pride in my ancestry than ever before. My father always talked about how rough life was for him growing up,and now I truly have an idea of what it must have been like for the Italian community early on. This film shows how social injustice and pure ignorance can ruin lives and break spirits. It is heartbreaking to see the Napolitano family break down and ultimately fail completely. The message, murder is a terrible crime, the battery of woman is unacceptable, but the most terrifying thought is of a family in need and an entire community not there to help. We have misplaced the line between personal privacy and love and compassion for our neighbors. This movie shows how sometimes keeping your nose clean can turn family into tragedy. It's a great film that brings hope to woman and communities all over the world. In my opinion, thats a must see.
