It was a movie afternoon, complete with popcorn and YoYo (Cineplex's replacement for my favourite TCBY - the jury is still out). I thought this was the best treatment of this story to hit the big screen. The story was compelling and relevant. The period felt authentic, although I know little to nothing of this time in African history. The performances were multi-dimensional and the characters properly heroic and convincingly motivated. I gave it an 8 out of 10, and watched it at Dartmouth Crossing Cineplex.
