Situations and Characters that Resonate on Many Levels--SMART is a Unique and Compelling Documentary
I have seen SMART several times and it continues to hold my attention. The filmmakers do an excellent job of balancing footage of animal rescues with ethical considerations and human drama. They take viewers through the diverse neighborhoods of Los Angeles and also touch upon issues post-Hurricane Katrina. There are strong central characters and themes that resonate on a universal level. This documentary reminds us that we have a responsibility to care for the animals in our environments, and that animals are essential to our well being. SMART as a team and film is unique and sure to be appreciated by those who value companion animals.
