You will not come out of this movie the same person you were going into it. Get ready to cry your eyes out, scream in anger, and rejoice that such a powerful love can exist in our world. DO NOT READ ANY SPOILERS OR SUMMARIES BEFORE VIEWING! This loving documentary about the father of a young boy is one of the best movies of this decade.
I thought I was one of those people that never cry until I watched this movie. I think everyone should watch it, but no one should rewatch it. But yeah, EVERYONE should watch it.
It will ruin you forever but you have to watch it.
The best documentary ever made, full of heart, love and sorrow.
Kurt Kuenne stuck with 4:3 aspect ratio which was a great choice since all his old material has it. It really blends in and at some point you forget what was filmed 20 years ago and what was filmed around the millennium. Pay attention to the way it was edited and paced. For me, those aspects make this documentary so outstanding. Last but not least, the way he uses sound to underline a statement or a scene is remarkable.
Honestly a great movie. I can’t say anything without spoiling it but you never really know where the movie is going next.
If I had to explain the experience of watching this movie in a sentence, I would say this movie broke me and then built me back up. It shows the best and worst things people are capable of. In the end, it’s a story about love and the power of it, even when we’re long gone.
Nods … yes, everyone should watch this movie. It is a tale of love. Love between friends, parents, children and the fact that certain people stay in your heart forever.
I wanted to be friends with all of Andrew’s friends. And in acknowledgement of the hearts of good parents, you will most certainly fall in love with Kate and David. Most memorable line came from Kurt: “You still have children.” I have cried every time I watched it, not a waste of tears or emotion.
Very good movie! I found the scenes/narratives of the trials/hearings progress difficult to follow. It was spoken very quickly.
Other than that it’s a very powerful movie. It moved me a lot.
