Important History
10 October 2018 | by baileymagnussonSee all my reviews

This film helped me understand what really happened to kids that were taken to residential schools. I also could feel the pain that they felt, it was the first time I was able to put myself in their shoes. I think this film has a very strong message, this film should be shown in high schools across Canada, for history classes. I think the actors did a good job acting even though it was a really hard subject. It probably caused them a lot of pain. The places they chose to shoot the film and the way they edited it made a huge impact on the emotions of the film. This movie is full of sadness, but also has a lot of importance.
