i saw this movie on the guide on our satellite, and i only turned it on cuz my civics teacher had talked about it earlier that day...it wasnt a bad movie, all in all, considering this is based on something that happened in the 1930's.
Disturbing movie that follows a dramatic and horrifying true tale. The story is more captivating than its film likeness, though the performances are acceptable. The storyline/script could have been written in such a way as to captivate more of a sense of the gravity of the event/tragedy.
