This story is both thought provoking and lovely. I thought about these characters, long after I had finished watching the movie. It lead to some great discussions with us, as parents, and our sons. This is a great film to use, to show the cost of intolerance. Share it with your teens and preteens. Since it is a quiet film is may bore those younger than preteen years.
