| Historical movie - fascinating story if you can get through the film!
For anyone with sympathies towards Communism or an interest in post-War history, the film Chosen has some appeal. Many will watch it with a sense of remorse - of what could have been, i.e. Trotsky and a different Soviet Union. As opposed to Stalin and his USSR of gulags and killings.

Although not a long film at just under 90 minutes, it moves slowly. Indeed, the movie requires concentration simply to get through. There were times I found myself wandering and had to rewind (yes, it's Netflix!) to make sure I didn't miss anything important.

The film is watchable for Communist sympathizers or students of Communism. For all others, watch at your own peril. Quite a shame as the story line could have made for a much more gripping film.
