30 August 2011 | nathan-liu
Superb portrayal of race and friendship.
This stunning film incorporates history, friendship, hate and humour in a way never done before. Believable characters compliment the strong, gripping story, and all are played well, demonstrating skilled acting.

The relationships between characters are amazing, and you find yourself relating with the characters as you experience the ones in the film.

You can sit in a cinema watching this film and all at once, laugh, cry and smile, as you stare in awe at this cinematic genius.

I look forward to reading the book in the near future, as I am sure it will be just as good.

Best Picture, here we come!
