Very powerful and moving film. Essentially three stories which all connect through the relationships between the characters, there is a strong theme of how people deal with feelings of helplessness and anger that build up as a result of aggression or loss. From bullying to the loss of a parent, to working in a refugee camp in Africa, the characters are so well developed and believable that it is easy to understand the choices they make. Especially impressive are the two boys who the bulk of the film follows. One of the best films of 2011.
