Great story
6 October 2017 | by marineus-110-897760See all my reviews

There was a round of applause at the end and I also did not see a person with a dry eye in the theater. Myself included. Hands down the best movie I've seen in a long time and the best in regards to that morning. My father (NYPD Retired) and myself both thought so. Especially hit home having been born one month after Welles and living in the next town over (Nyack to West Nyack) I had many of the same experiences as he did growing up. Just to relive that day through his parents eyes and his work was for lack of a better word... Outstanding.
