In the conversation that follows, the number of lines that Brian has written changes from three to one and back to three lines. See more »

Unfortunate!
14 January 2011 | by oliveoyl-1See all my reviews

This is a wonderful movie. Too bad that it was not managed properly. The story needed to be told and will be one of the greats as far as I am concerned. The acting is superb, it brings the devastation of Katrina into each American home like no news reports could. It is an injustice to consider this movie just another "out of the ashes" "feel good" story. During the time of Katrina I could not help but wonder why we Americans had allowed the Patriot Act and Homeland Security to start taking over our lives, when mother nature is a much more formidable force than any terrorist acts. This movie made me think about how great people are when they have the resolve to do the extraordinary because of rather than despite insurmountable odds.
