One of The Best Movies This Year -- Raw, Real, Emotionally Captivating
This is by far one of the best movies i've seen this year, and in my opinion will stand to be one of the best period pieces ever created.
Two different families living in the same environment, but in different worlds at the same time. The performances were real and grounded, which created some memorable moments on camera. This film doesn't a very good job of displaying the natural love one human can have for another, regardless of their racial background, that racism is a learned trait.
The films also highlights the lasting effects of war (PTSD,...).
