I found the girst 3 quarters of the film rather dull. The plot was a little hard to follow and seemed to ramble. However, once Vera is arrested and her amazing acting ability is on display, the film becomes excellant. It raises some interesting discussion, and in the end was a very powerful peace of cinema. Most teens probably won't be interested, but I think almost anybody can appreciate the depth of the performance by Stauldon. Talk about an oscar snub.
