This film gave me goosebumps. You know you’re watching a good film when it gives you the chills. Films that are based on a true story, such a hard hitting story, are always emotional to watch.
I loved the cast. They were all perfect in their roles. I’m so glad they didn’t modernise the story. It happened in the 80s so they made everything look like it was from that era. It made it feel more real.
The hardest part comes at the end where it reveals the real people that went through it and where they are now. That’s when it hits you that this actually happened. That it’s a real story. It’s a good film to watch. If you lived in the 80s and heard about it on the news then I’d say definitely watch it. If you don’t have any knowledge on this then watch it to gain knowledge and see what people actually went through.
A beautifully constructed film depicting real events!
