    Saw this film last year at the Tribeca Film Festival. They don't make many films like this - I highly recommend it to anyone looking to be entertained and inspired.

    A heartwarming, cleansing film that's simply good for the soul.

    Although by now routine, the intertwining of separate story strands is solidly structured, and the different mini-narratives resolved in unsurprising yet satisfying ways.
  3. Only Nthati Moshesh, as a single black mother working as a housekeeper wooed by a displaced Congolese (Eriq Ebouaney), makes a dent in white-American-expatriate Mark Bamford's toothless scenario.
