Edith and Eddie a Magical Story
15 June 2018 | by hblechyndenSee all my reviews

This heartwarming story 'Americans Americas oldest interracial Newlyweds' is about two people of different races who fell in love and got married at the age of 95 and 96, Edith and Eddie. Edith has dementia and her family wants to send Edith to Florida so she can be with her daughter, but Edith does not want to go and Eddie does not want her to go and they end up calling the police to try to get Edith to go. The camera angles in this documentary emphasizes that different races can be happy together no matter where they are, example a Edith and Eddie sitting by the lake they used this by a long shot, they did this shot by being behind the couple so we can see what Edith and Eddie were seeing. This documentary made me feel sad in some ways e.g. When they were trying to force Edith to Florida and happy in other ways e.g. when Edith and Eddie were by the lake. I would recommend this to a more mature audience because I do not think people my age would really like this type of story.
