Scandal
10 April 2001 | by rfronapfelSee all my reviews

The thing that struck me most about this film, was that it was a very personal look into a someone's life. On the surface, that would make it inaccessible to most, but in fact the exact opposite is true. It touches on some universal truths about finding one's way (or one's voice) in the face of so many conflicting influences. Although, I wouldn't dare relate my own experiences to those of Nia. It's nice to see a film that can speak to many and few at the same time.
