Review of last week's film (Amour, 5 stars)
Steven says: Each audience member will react to this film differently, depending on their own experiences with age-related illnesses. It is extremely realistic, personal, intimate, and moving.

The best and most powerful stories are those that can be applied and understood by the masses. With that understanding, this story is one for all to see and learn from.
