||An Eye Opening Movie Experience !!|
You will want to see it TWICE. The acting was incredible. The music was just as good. A must see for everyone, particularly the wanna be American teenage Thugs. Excellent entertainment, yet thought provoking at the same time. All of the awards that this movie has won, were well deserved. See it !!
