First of all i would like to say that i had heard about this movie since it came out . It was a movie that made noise and didn't pass unnoticed. I didn't have the opportunity to watch this movie back then, but never is too late. Recently i was discussing with a friend about movies we didn't like and he mentioned that he didn't enjoy this movie because of the plot twist. I found interesting though and out of the usual. So i gave it a shot and i have to say that i liked this movie. I have watched too many movies and i thought i had seen everything. I was wrong. This movie is not perfect but it's closed to be called perfect. It's not boring but it's also not a drama. I would characterized it as a social movie with a social impact. All in all, 9/10.
