Great Movie!
I've seen this movie 6 times and I love it. The cast is great and the story explores all kinds of different issues. Worth seeing! The music is very good. The story is about issues that are still relevant today. The photography is beautiful. There is one moment where a plane sweeps by the camera that is breathtaking. It was a treat to watch. There were parts of the movie that were slow here and there but the pacing of the movie helped me to relax and enjoy it all the more.

The set and costumes were convincing and I really felt for the characters at the end. I think the movie makes some really good points about relationships and loving others. There were some very poignant moments that I appreciated. I don't want to talk too much about the plot - I myself like to go into a movie knowing as little as possible. But I do think that you'll enjoy this and hope you do.
