Slow, Thought-provoking, Relevant, Well acted, Interesting

See it if Well written, acted & directed. Interesting story. Relevant story to be told in America today.

Don't see it if You don't care about slower plays. I was a bit disappointed with the ending. It needed a better more powerful conclusion.

Interesting story

See it if I thought the story was interesting and it was well acted.

Don't see it if You dislike plays that rely heavily on narration rather than dialog and actions to further the story.
