Debate this movie; don't reduce, pre-judge or condescend to it. Acted deftly and passionately. Formidable momentum.
No filmmaking expo, and yet, what do adults say they want? Good parts for women, in well-acted dramas that take stands and engage real, timely issues? Great job staying home, everyone.
