It does what good documentaries should do: it shines a very focused light on a very specific problem, a problem that affects millions of people and their families.

"The Widowmaker" is commendable in that although it is a work of advocacy, it gives an array of opinions.

Over six hundred thousand Americans die of heart attacks each year, more than from all forms of cancer combined.
