A beautiful film that has the power to match its own story.
This film is absolutely great, and I recommend everyone to just watch it right now on Netflix. This needs to be seen and supported.
It is full of interesting and powerful themes that are rarely portrayed like this in cinema, and teaches a lot of important lessons without ever being preachy about it. It's one of these based on a true story movies that are actually really good and achieve what they are going for, and also match the importance and beauty of the real tale.
All of the acting, the cinematography, the score, and the directing are working so well together, which makes for an excellent watching experience, and one that will actually stick with you for a bit.
Please give The Boy Who Harnessed The Wind a chance.
