"Another magnificent movie with Chiwetel Ejiofor as an actor, which i like very much for making this type of movies that are really profound, realistic, inspirational, touching, and even more surprised is the fact that is also the director and writer of the movie. Absolutely one of the best actors, (and now director and writer) for this type of movies. And the other involved actors they are very good as well (normally are wich is expected)."
