  • 5 stars "The ties that bind and tear us apart are dissected in this captivating movie. Religion, marriage, the art of becoming who one is and the conflicts inherent within are dealt artistically by the actors, actresses in this movie. I was never bored."
  • 5 stars "Very well done. The acting was superb. Depends on your background since it has a profound story line - actually, two stories for the price of one. Very ambitious and some people will dislike it. I liked it. Would recommend it."
