Deeply Thought Provoking & Conscious Raising

As a 65 yr old great grandmother, this movie touched me in a way that made me feel 'heard.' There is much in life that can't be explained. Much that we think about, do and say that only someone who's been through it can understand or empathize with. I am not just a great grandmother, mother, employee, senior citizen waiting to go 'home'. My thoughts and experiences are deep and wonderful, heartbreaking and tragic. But they are mine and they are valuable- to me. This movie validates that. I dont believe its a movie for a young person unless they have a maturity beyond thier years. One that usually doesnt come until later in life. Thank you

There is a powerful message here. Subtle and astounding. Beautifully soul touching revelation of human nature.

I have never seen a film like this one. It far surpasses any other in every way. The famous actors got the message. Everything about this movie is perfect. It is entertainment at its finest if you are willing to slow down and appreciate the extremely subtle nuances. Particularly for those awake to the soul realm. Tune in to the love. It is my favorite film. All should try it.
