Wasn't really for me.
Absolutely amazing documentary. In all honesty, while I'm sure it was a kick for the inmates to see their works read by the likes of Marisa Tomei and Glenn Close, their work was much more powerful when they themselves read it to the class. In fact, in some cases, the over-acting of the actresses on stage detracted from the words they were reading. This is a great look at the redemptive, healing, cathartic power writing can have on one's soul. The writing classes we see are just as much therapy groups as they are workshops on writing. It's a challenging documentary to watch, as these are women guilty of murder, in some cases truly horrendous murders; but they are also human beings with remorse, hopes, dreams, anger, and pain. Reconciling those two aspects is a herculean task, for the viewer certainly, but moreso for the women coming to terms (and in some cases not coming to terms) with their violent actions. A powerful, moving documentary.
it was good but what w/ the acotrs?? they were so bad u made them think abotu the ppl. igts about ppl who arent connected 2 the two things. u should do waht u know how 2 do!
