|Great Movie, lacks subtitles|
Great movie, excellent soundtrack and grat performances. One minor problem. Despite of what the site says, there are no closed captioned or any subtitles at all. So, foreign customers, be aware....

||A MUST SEE|
This movie is great for middle school and high school. It is a powerful learning tool about racism. It kept my 9th graders on the edge of their seats throughtout the whole movie!! They insisted to watch it a second time.

||One of the best movies I've ever seen|
Very inspiring, well written with a great cast. I have also read the book, and must say that though they have many differences, one was just as brilliant as the other.

||differs from the book|
I was a huge fan of the Power of One novel by Bryce Courtenay. It is one of, if not my favorite books I have ever read. For those who watch this movie and have read the book, you will be dissappointed in the changes in the storyline they did for the movie screenplay. It unfortunately takes your focus off of the fine performances of Steven Dorff and Morgan Freeman. The movie is good but if you liked the book and expect to see that exact storyline on film, you will be dissappointed. They made the film more of an "Anti-Apartheid statement", which it does very well, then the book's story of a personal triumph... All in all, I would still recommend watching it.

||Moving Story of History We Know Little About|
Even though the movie did not follow the original novel and missed some important characters and scenes, in the short time the movie had to tell the story of South Africa and a young boy coming of age, it was beautifully done with moving moments. The music stands out as outstanding.
