Wow, nothing but a wow! The movie touched on inhuman behavior from very human people. It showed how people could have pride and integrity at all stations, and how the same people lived with shame and humility. It created a very real world populated by multifaceted, real people – based on real people and events.
It was painful and cathartic to watch, showing how far we can and haven't come. But also showing a real friendship that shows how much we are capable of.
