Great context for an important period

This film is excellently crafted and avoids trying to deal with too many parts of the whole in depth while still allowing audience to piece together the issues at play surrounding this pivotal event. There are one or two monologues that try to say a bit more than needed but that is understandable given the depth of the issues being covered. Also avoids focusing on any one actor drawcard and all the actors stay true to the message. For those who care, it has no bad language or sex scenes which shows a class by the makers.
