    Great cast,good movie about doctors and nurses in unbelievable circumstances trying to do the best they can. Very well done.

  • ★★★★ 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.

    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.

    Insane. So good. Heart breaking reminder of the tragedies that go on in Africa. Superb acting, no surprise, from Theron and Bardem. The plot could have been slightly better fleshed out. But such a great love story. And the score was mind blowing.Zimmer.... nuff said
