  1. Anthony DaCosta says:

    I attended a screening at the New York Premiere and I thought the movie and storyline were all well done. The really noisy first half hour was a little overwhelming, but all in all I think there are aspects, [acting, screenplay, art direction, make-up] and more, should be Oscar bound. A must see, especially for those who did not live through this shameful period of humanity period.
