When my adult kids suggest a movie to watch it, I really try to find the time to follow through. The fact that they've recommended it is enough for me. Like it or not, it gives us something to talk about, and our response to the movie opens a bit of a window into each other's mind. So bring it on. As long as it's not a horror movie, I'm game to have a look at anything they suggest.
What did I think? Well to start, I felt the film had good bones - casting, script, directing, producing, filming, costumes, editing, lighting and flow. I was drawn in from the start and the movie kept my interest all the way to the finish. There was a negative for me, but it had nothing to do with the movie itself. I found myself pissed off at the travesty that was taking place. That this is based on a true event made my reaction even worse. My blood boiled and my blood pressure soared from the start of the trial until the end of the movie. After it was over I had to figure out how to calm down enough to actually get to sleep. It took several hours.
