Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Without a single riot scene or horrific effect, it tells a slow, gentle story of camaraderie and growth, with an ending that abruptly finds poetic justice in what has come before.
Fresh: It's the no-bull performances that hold back the flood of banalities.
Fresh: Freeman, who is simply a great actor, a man who has never struck a false note in his career, both narrates this tale and anchors it with his authoritative playing.
Fresh: A testament to the human spirit...

Greatest movie - Bad Title
This is probably the greatest movie ever. To bad it was given such an impossible name. Out of fear to mispronounce the movie name, I bet there where many that missed it in the theaters or at the video stores. Now it's their chance...
