From what I gather, it is a very downbeat story and it is also very unbalanced and uneven. On the one hand, it is an animal rights documentary where we find many scenes showing how cruel and disgusting the factory farms and killing animals is. However, at the same time we see a man who lost his family due to animal abuse. His son has to leave his farm because of his mental illness, but he also comes back with many ideas to continue farming and the hope that they will be able to do so again. A lot of times I found myself trying to analyze what I just saw and what was real and what was not. Most of the things that happened in this film were real, but there were many things that didn't make sense. For instance, why would people go into animal research if there was no real scientific evidence to support the experiments? I think that this is a very honest and important film and definitely one of the best documentary on the animal rights movement.

The third in a trilogy, this film is set in the a working class West Country, but the focus is on those living in Scotland. Unlike in the previous films, the couple of Highland-born, Scottish-raised carers of the elderly is the central focus here, although a second wife is also in the story. This is a far more serious, darker tale, taking place on a low income housing estate. The film is very, very dramatic, and all three movies will make you shudder at certain points in the story, but all three are very good films. The performances are very good and it is very moving. This film will make you think about the lives of many young and old people today, in a very real, realistic way. However, if you have never been in a care home, you might be a little intimidated by the stories told. It is a very sad story, and it shows how a care home can be a tough place for the elderly. It will make you feel very sorry for the carers, and that is a good thing.

Mira Nair is one of the best actors of Indian cinema. Her screen presence as an actress has been consistently surprising. She has acted in big movies such as Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham and Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham 3 as well as small films like 'Muzaffarnagar', 'Namaz', 'Hum Aapke Hain Koun', 'Mudh' and 'Jodhaa'. Her talents as an actress have been alluring for over a decade and she continues to deliver. There's a story here of a girl and her dogs living in a poor village. Their lives are rocked when the local mafia take their cattle to a town in a nearby town. They are forced to work for them in order to make enough money for their grazing. Then the parents and the animals decide to sell the animals and are forced to sell the animals. The family-life of the family of the animals, who are all women, is drastically affected. There is a very clear contrast in the fact that Nair has never done a small film like this before. In this film she is the star, but she is also not a stand-out, but a very good actress. The movie is a personal statement. It is a realisation of people, because there are people who are deprived of their natural rights. It is a story about the condition of women in India. The film is well-crafted and compelling. It is very gentle and the other girls are also very good. It is a very touching film. The one-hour film runs at 85 minutes and is well worth watching. You would find Nair and the other girls to be very convincing. Nair's music is haunting and the film is a real masterpiece of Indian cinema. It has superb cinematography. It has got a strong story, well-crafted direction and an actor who knows how to handle a role.

I liked this movie. It's the kind of movie that you can watch with your kid and not feel bad about it. It's a funny movie and sometimes it makes you laugh out loud. My daughter and I also found it funny because we are from Texas and it is good to hear that "Sh*t" is said by people in Texas. If you are looking for a good movie to watch with your kid, I recommend this movie. You will enjoy it. I hope you enjoy it.

The only reason I gave it 8/10 was because the kids at the theater asked to borrow it. I really wish that they would have been shown it again, and listened to the comments of the kids who commented on the scene on the boat. The reason I gave it 8/10 was because, although the children in the theater thought it was very realistic, their comments and how it affected them made me feel badly for them. They were just watching, with their parents, and were confused. The purpose of the film was to show how a parent of a child can, sometimes, feel, after losing a child. But, the film is not necessary, at all, in the end. It was not a big deal, really. It could have been told in one sentence, or, without giving too much away, it could have been told in one of two ways: 1. They showed the parents with the children, saying how it made them lose sleep, and how it made them feel sad and angry, and how it affected them. Maybe they said something like that. And the parents would have said something like that. That would have been so much better, since they said it to the children, in their place, and showed the parents on the boat, or, like they did in this film, they did a scene with the kids that showed the parents with the children, at a distance, like they were there. They could have told it in the simplest way, they could have just said it. But, I have to give it 8/10, because, it was great. It was nice, it was touching, it was sad, but, it was also very realistic. And, if the kids were on the boat, they would have been scared, I'm sure. It wasn't a bad movie, it was a good movie, and I liked it. I think that everyone should see it. I give it 8/10, because it was great. Hope you like it, too.
