    An excellent film, which is really very tragic and the tragedy of Sandra and her parents, as well as the various players, makes for a very realistic portrayel of a true story and the terrible system of apartheid that is now no more , thank goodness.

    Heartbreaking story of a coloured girl with white parents who grew up in South Africa during the 1950's. It shows the deeply flawed system of apartheid and the pain it caused to this family. Definitely a must-see to all South Africans.

    A shocking but moving story of the terrible times in South Africa.

    This was a very good film. It is based on a true story, so that made it all the more touching. I can only imagine this family's struggle in raising such a child. But even more, Sandra's pain in growing up in such a world and never feeling like she belonged. Sophie Okenedo did an excellent job in portraying Sandra. She is such a wonderful actress. Worth seeing.

    This is a very involving drama, not least thanks to a strong performance from Sophie Okonedo, who plays a black woman with white parents at the height of the Apartheid era in South Africa. She encounters a lot of prejudice and struggles to fit into society as she is shunned merely for her skin colour.

    Film depicting the ridiculous and devastating politics that existed in apartheid South Africa, based on a true story of a black woman born to white parents in the 1950's. If you like true life, british produced drama this ones for you. Sophie Okenado is as wonderful as ever.

    Good movie, very well done, but there was something about its atmosphere that I found a bit .... cheap? otherwise full 4-stars.

    This happened -- and the situation would be more than ridiculous if it were not so painful. The story starts to drag towards the end, but most of the movie is well put together.
