Interesting but far too long
23 August 2018 | by nonbonSee all my reviews

I was surprised and delighted to learn of the various services and facets of the NY public library, especially how they are trying to ensure everyone has an opportunity to access services and information. I wish our library services in the UK were as diverse and well funded. Only criticism of the film is the running time. I felt I could have understood the intended impact of the film in half the time.
