nice
21 July 2017 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

its didactic purpose is obvious. the generous use of clichés is far to be surprising. and, except the too unrealistic scenes or the expressions of too strong desire to demonstrate the thesis, it is a nice film, with a clear feminist message, involuntary ridiculous in the scenes who are pathetic. the fight against segregation is a generous subject. and it is not surprising. and the tools for remind it are many , each for the right target. this film is a good example.
