★★★★ review by Mac on Letterboxd
How this has a 12% on Rotten Tomatoes is beyond me. Though this is not a great film, it is an important film that deserves to be seen. Sean Penn and Co. have the best intentions to make this but loose focus on the humanitarians themselves and leak into an overly dramatized romance.
But when the film focuses on the humanitarians themselves, it is a gut wrenching story that I couldn't fathom how true it really is.
We need to keep in our heads all that is happening in the Sudan as I find its terror is underscored and not getting its true attention. But the people over there helping are beyond us all, may we keep them all in our heads until the unrest ends.
There is a line that really stuck with me on the refugee crisis that is said here that needs to be heard. She says:
Dreams are not luxuries. They are essentials.
★★★★ review by Anderson Castro on Letterboxd
O arco humanitário é comovente e brilhantemente bem realizado, algo que não acontece com a parte romântica dos protagonistas, ainda assim um filme formidável e infelizmente subjulgado.
★★★★ review by AV74 on Letterboxd
Great performances by Javier Bardem and Charlize Theron ... I loved this movie but I’m a fan of any movie related to Africa!
