First: Just an FYI; this is a MUCH better price than what is found on the montereymedia site, for everyone looking for a good deal.

This movie certainly does not shy away from showing you some brutal but necessary imagery. It is, in fact, the imagery and cinematography that I think really makes it something special. From the scenic shots to the close ups.
I also want to give props to every actor on screen. Great work. But especially Kawennáhere Devery Jacobs. Absolutely amazing job.
As far as story goes, while some of the pacing felt a little iffy to me, it did not take away from the story itself. Which is a good one. I especially like how it shows multiple generations of damage. The grandmother, the parents, and Aila, who has all the layers piled on her. (And also, on a bit less mature level, one piece of the ending revenge in particular that was so good to see, after everything that has happened.)

The only people I do not recommend this movie to, are those who are easily triggered by the subject of residential schools, and alcohol/drug abuse. These things /are/ evident in the description alone, though.
The language was also jarring at times. I had to frequently remind myself of the setting's decade. But that might be because I'm young.
OTHERWISE, I think every Canadian should see this, and I don't care if it's a subject you don't want to acknowledge, because there is a very large part of us that do not have that luxury.

I watched this movie last night, and it is still on my mind this morning. I hope that alone can tell you something.

Every Canadian needs to see this. It feels very important. Its not based on real life events but each scenario is very plausible when it comes to the residential schools and the effects on the communities. I went to the premiere and heard much sobbing and sniffling during the film. Its truly heart wrenching yet it also has funny moments. For being Jeff Barnaby's first film is pretty mind blowing.

This film is so important and it needs all the support and exposure it can get. We all have something to learn from the depiction of life in the reserve schools, the systematic violence and the intent of the boarding school era, and how a story like this touches all generations of First Nation and Native Americans. I myself am neither of these identities, but have been researching on the subject of boarding schools for quite some time. This film does not solely aim to educate, but to offer a glimpse to a very raw reality...The film is beautifully shot and the casting is exceptional. It is great to see such great commitment from young First Nation actors, and all those involved. I sure hope to see them get recognized for this amazing film.
