Fluffy, Cliched, Ambitious

See it if you like extreme minimalism and an odd, very informal theater-going experience

Don't see it if you want such an important subject to be handled with much, much more care and delicacy

Great acting, Absorbing, Must see, Riveting, Thought-provoking

See it if the dramatization of a real family's resilience and love, created from their own words, in the face of war and adversity, intrigues you.

Don't see it if a family's compelling and uplifting true story of flight from the Nazis and survival during World War II is too much for you.

Must see, Intense, Great writing, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if Passionate, insightful storytelling of a chapter of history that MUST be preserved, told and never forgotten. It is especially relevant now.

Don't see it if It's a theater based historical account.. I don't know if any reason why not to see it.
