  • Myers-Powell understands the psychology of human trafficking, and her advice is admirably sober, clear-eyed, and devoid of sentiment.

    September 10, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Despite the harrowing stories that fill the film from start to finish, "Dreamcatcher" is not hopeless. How could it be hopeless when there are people like Myers-Powell in the world?

    March 27, 2015 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • These stories are hard to hear, but Myers-Powell demonstrates that bearing witness and testifying are key to recovery and healing, as are unconditional love and a belief that no one is past redemption.

    March 19, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Like its subject, this documentary is powerful, honest, and empowering. Bravo.

    March 8, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • We are reminded of unhappy truths about capitalism and the US way of justice. But we also get to savour that nation's perennially stirring belief in reinvention.

    March 6, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Despite the hard-hitting nature of the material, Longinotto never sensationalises or sentimentalises her subject and so delivers a galvanising portrait of female heroism and endurance that's clear, dignified and marked by a touching empathy.

    March 5, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
