  1. 100
    One of the most searing, heartbreaking and ultimately triumphant mother/daughter stories ever put on film.
  2. 90
    From first shot to last, Dworkin's movie is a continuously absorbing, sometimes revelatory, frequently moving experience; as documentary filmmaking it's not only amazingly intimate but also characterized by an unexpected lyricism.
  3. It is a movie about the real challenge of heroism.
  4. Reviewed by: Ronnie Scheib

  5. 75
    fully devotes itself to painting a family portrait seldom allowed such rich cinematic detail.
