Fantastic film with mind blowing lessons of respect and value of people.
30 September 2004 | by jaiston1See all my reviews

This film has since I first saw it many years ago touched me deeply due to the fact that it is still this many years from when it is supposedly taking place such a huge problem with racism.

I feel that the film as well as being entertaining from the more easy to enjoy level have a deep meaningful message that is important for all people out there to actually think about.

Choose your friends fro how they treat you and not for what you want them to be. If someone is kind to you - be kind back. Do not judge cause that just make situation that ask for trouble.

Well, I might read to much into this film but I do love it and feel that there is a deep meaning there. However this is probably different from many others people and how they would feel watching this film.

Well these are my words about this film that for me is way more that just "one in a million".

Live life to the fullest - that is your duty to yourself.

Love

J
