      Audience Member I cried like a baby. The quote at the end of the movie was so profound " Dreams do not die, they are fulfilled or reborn." A must see! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member "Like Cotton Twines" is at its best in the revelations of what this primitive practice of Trokosi does to women physically, psychologically and emotionally.

      Andrea Thompson Cultured Vultures The movie's ending seem a bit syrupy and idealistic by comparison. It's the only departure from writer-director Leila Djansi's painful, yet somehow hopeful realism. Rated: 9/10 Jan 31, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews
