It moves briskly but leaves room for the stellar supporting cast to turn stock figures into appealingly shaded characters.

Well-meaning, well made and all but allergic to subtlety.

The film benefits from an impressive cast. Given enough time, word of mouth could build a good-sized audience for this absorbing drama.

An intrusive musical score and periodic fades to black, as for commercials, make this feel as if it were made for TV, but otherwise it's exceptional, from script and performances to production design.

Depression drama has good intentions but doesn't deliver.

An anachronistic rip-off which implies that the idea of male beauty pageants originated with African-Americans in the 1930s, instead of with Zulus in the 1990s. Is the film otherwise worthwhile? Yes, but it still weirded me out.
