Goofs

Jan has been through chemo and is wearing head covering supposedly because she is now bald, but in several scenes when her head covering does not cover the nape of her neck well, strands of hair are clearly visible. A month later, her head covering reveals her bangs which are full and quite long. A few months later her head is uncovered, and her hair is full and shoulder length. Hair just does not grow that fast. See more »

It's not about "Community"
23 December 2019 | by bpolhemusSee all my reviews

It's about "the one." The thing that concerns me about this modern obsession with "doing things for the community" is that it has, historically, been used as an excuse for more oppression.

The Marxists thought - think - that people are a "herd" that needs to be managed by their superiors, the elites. They used "community" as an excuse to oppress the individual (see Ayn Rand's "Anthem").

This movie isn't about "serving the community," it's about people helping people, individually, not collectively.

The current politicians' emphasis on taking things from "the rich" to help "the community" is just the same Marxist horror starting up all over again.

If you want to put the ideals exempted by this movie into action, find someONE to serve.
