Doesn't need the answers, and asks the right questions!

Both my 13 yr old daughter and I enjoyed "Somewhere Between". As you know if you live it adoption is complicated with no clear answers. This movie brings to the forefront the questions and struggles of many adoptive families, not only for families with children from China. We are an African American adoptive family, and we found we could relate to the emotions and feelings discussed in the movie. Movies don't always need to have the answers sometimes they just need to show us the questions. "Somewhere Between" does a great job of bringing up relevant issues in adoption, and I highly recommend it for everyone.
