| WTF is poverty porn? Was Oliver Twist poverty porn?
A moving epic film with a cute precocious kid? Check! A film designed to make me cry?- Check! Parents as the protagonists? Check! A film that entertained me and moved me? Yes? That's all I ask of this film. Why all the 1/10 reviews from do gooder film reviewers- "I work in Syria, blah blah blah" well a film about your life probably isn't entertaining. Stop questioning the political and economic motives and enjoy an entertaining and engrossing film with a fabulous cast- isnt that why we go to the theatre?
