Absorbing, Entertaining, Thought-provoking, Relevant, Ambitious

See it if You want a family show about immigration. A great way to get the idea across about how to grasp such a big subject. Clever staging.

Well meaning, Intelligent, Slow, Relevant, Disappointing

Don't see it if If you want a thoughtful, fully rounded view of refugees see The Jungle which returns this year. This didn't challenge it felt remote.
