OK so there's movies that you cry at...Bambi's mum dying, step mom, titanic etc but there is never going to be another movie that hits home like this. I cried so many times because it was so real. It is based on fact and contrary to the critics I don't believe there is any over exaggeration of the conditions and abuse that went on during this time. Not one member of the cast doesn't put everything into this piece and I have never seen such outstanding performances and truthful acting. Most blockbuster movies have actors trying to look pretty and interested...trying...but this has actors portraying people the way they were not the way that looks best! It is fantastic!!! It is also very educational but those looking for your traditional blockbuster movies turn away, this is for drama lovers, history lovers and those with a passion for true art!
