This film is truly remarkable. It explores hard hitting relationships and the tough realities that are very real and true for a lot of people. It delivered strong and meaningful messages in a beautiful, cinematographic manner. The acting was excellent and added a strength to an already strong film.
The film not only delivers great acting, narrative and cinematography but it also helps raise awareness for children and anyone and everyone who has grown up in abusive relationships and families.
I would highly recommend Stingrays and be sure to have your tissues ready as it does tug at your heart.
