A gripping, moving, and at times intense high concept piece, devoid of the routine bells and whistles of modern blockbuster action releases. But filled with socially responsible heft and gravitas that perfectly meets the moment and spirit of the times. A nod to the past projecting a contemporary message, with an intimate, spectacularly talented cast of established and emerging young artists that melt into their parts, all completely embodying the roles of historical figures, springing them to life. An amazing work of artistic achievements.
Note: if you're like the average consumer who prefers to be blown away by sophisticated special effects and gimmicky narratives this may not be the film for you. This is more of a theatrical production, bursting with thoughtful, historical context. If one has appreciation for great acting and conceptualized works of art they'll likely love this jewel.
