emotionally powerful

This is a very touching film that made me cry out of its goodness. At the end, an older couple was so moved they hugged and cried in each other's arms.

coming of age story but for MATURE teenages only

this movie is incredibly inspiring, but the child abuse scenes are so disturbing that I am still haunted by it 5 months after seeing it in theatres.
