Worth the time and money. Woven is a beautiful movie with a great message. There where many twists and turns in the story line .

One could not predict what will happen next . Woven Movie had all the elements of good entertainment,it has humor, drama, great story line, colors and emotions. What was interesting was how they showcased beautiful Ethiopian culture, their food, wedding, clothes . Movie has drama . Every character has layers of personalities that unfolds as the movie progressed . Lives of all characters somehow is woven together . Woven movie has a great message towards the end. Enjoyed watching it so much.
