While not a particularly great documentary, it succeeds hugely at what it sets out to do, aided by a dramatic storyline that would probably be dismissed as too fantastically implausible if it was in a fiction film.
Sometimes the narrative suffers from a surfeit of hindsight -- earnest sermonizing on the importance of friendship, family and dedication in the boys' development. The sermons are worthy ones, though, and Mr. Belman's film dramatizes what it preaches.
