Pleasantly Surprised
6 February 2020 | by edendembinskiSee all my reviews

I knew nothing about this documentary going into it. They displayed the story well. It was refreshing to see someone actually take on what this man took on. I recommend it even if you aren't that interested in the subject matter.
