    I hadn't actually seen the movie when I bought it, but it was a movie I had wanted to see. I thought that maybe with all the hype circulating around the movie I wouldn't be as impressed with it as others were, but I loved it. I loved the story being told and I believe it's a movie that everyone needs to see.
