      Audience Member Amazing tale of the lengths one will go to to get a fix. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member I thought the movie was not as good as the book. I expected more although I liked the Cape Town scenes alot. The woman does smoke way too much. But it was great to see Tauriq Jenkins (even though he does not speak in the movie) Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member I can honestly say this movie was not what I expected, compared to the book. This woman smokes a lot, and nogal while wearing a parda. If I was a Muslim, I'd be upset at the way they depict Muslim woman, customs, like washing the dead, and praying. Of course the casino thing just made matters worse. I'm not surprised that it played at Cinema Nouvea, because of it's arty conotations. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Fantastic movie and author. I would love to see her other work brought to life! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member A very touching movie! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member A really watchable film made for very little in my very own hometwon. (Cape Town). It has a universal theme about addiction and a mother's love for her child and the grief she has when she looses that child plus how we all can go astray from our morals or religion. Great characters and storytelling is what it is all about and this film succeeds most of the time. Recommended! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews
