  •  Solid direction and tight scripting (5+ / 0-)

    Sometime you can have a great true story and the script still goes all sacharin or over the top and you lose the power of the story.   This is a tight script that plays it absolutely straight.

    Because of those choices, the film is far more powerful then if it went out of it's way to bang you over the head with the message.  In fact, it's the subtle straightforward nature of it that makes it a fantastic effort.
