You've seen this sort of thing before, but the film, directed by Paul Taylor, happens to be especially well photographed, and the youngsters more winning than most.
This film about orphans in South Africa would be satisfying even if the only good thing about it were its refreshing lack of Bono.
Compared to the reality-TV programs that wring manufactured drama from manipulated situations, We Are Together is an example of admirable restraint.
Heartrending musical documentary examines plight of South African AIDS orphans.
As others have reported, this is a very inspiring film. However, it does raise troubling questions about the source of Africa's misery and how it will be ended.
The specter of the AIDS crisis is raised on several occasions, but never as anything more than a way to elicit easy sympathy.
Intimate and emotional, with rather a lot of time focusing on the gorgeous young children as they laugh, play and, yes, cry
While it strays occasionally into Oxfam-advert territory, this remains a touching documentary.
