My husband and I saw this film a couple of weeks ago and were COMPLETELY. BLOWN. AWAY. It was one of the most impressive film works we'd ever seen.
It totally deserves the Oscars it got for best directing, film editing, script adaptation, cinematography, sound mixing, original score (A.R. Rahman ROCKS!), original song, and BEST PICTURE!
If you haven't seen it already, go and see this amazing, painful, hopeful film. It's hard and compelling at the same time, brutal yet beautiful, without the cynicism that plagues so many treatments of dark subjects. What a story!
