In the purest form of cinema entertainment, she invites you to forget about the problems in your local government and feel superior to the "backwards" policies in China. A feel-good event. Expand

If you think for a moment that any "anglo-Americans" are delighting in this crushing story you are sadly mistaken. But go ahead Sunnylee and wag your finger at the Americans and deflect the attention from what could be the biggest holocaustIf you think for a moment that any "anglo-Americans" are delighting in this crushing story you are sadly mistaken. But go ahead Sunnylee and wag your finger at the Americans and deflect the attention from what could be the biggest holocaust the world hasn't ever seen. And they were BABIES! Shame on you. Does your self-righteous indignation have no bounds. Oops! I've committed another microaggresion. Expand

Somewhat interesting content but artistically limp. It would be nice if they could find a stronger balance.

A knockout of a historical doc. One of the most scaring stories you will learn about humanity. Everyone left the screening speechless and crying and you won't be an exception.

Nanfu Wang's "One Child Nation" investigates the human cost of China's controversial One Child Policy in both a personal and national scale. It is a well-told and horrifying documentary that bears witness to this dark period in Chinese history.

An insightful, sometimes-gruesome, often-appalling look at China's failed one child only policy and all of the unexpected fallout to come from it.

The film details the horrendous emotional damage inflicted upon all those the policy touched, as well as the negative social implications that arose from it both at present and for the future. A potent cautionary tale for anyone -- or any society -- contemplating wide-scale social engineering with no foresight for the consequences. Expand

Informative and heartfelt, but it doesn't really chronicle as compelling of a story as most of my favorite documentaries. This felt a little like homework.

Brutally honest, be it the subject of the movie or it's cast. It doesn't leave you with the right answer, but with your, answer, which is it's answer.
