| Powerful in parts but perhaps an opportunity missed?
In the bonus features the makers of the film assert that they wanted to make a film about a human story rather than a story about the issue of slavery. To me this is an artificial separation. Slavery IS a human story particularly when dealing with a specific case and since the whole circumstance of this girl is about her slavery you cannot but tackle the issue as well. By making the characters so black and white it detracts from rather than adding to the realism. The unrelenting cruelty by otherwise "normal" people isn't explored properly because in real life such people convince themselves that what they're doing isn't cruel at all. Exploring these characters in greater depth would have forced the film to examine the issue more deeply and made the human story that much more powerful and realistic. Definitely worth watching despite these caveats.
