    What a fantastic and well-rounded, important documentary. 

    I enjoyed that it is focused on Drew’s journey as a survivor. I thought it was very interesting that cameras were on her when she purchased the New York Times that held her story. Having the cameras there in that moment did feel intrusive yet also distant and respectful. 

    This is truly an important piece. 

    My ONLY critique, which I know is completely pointless but I feel I must mention*, is the use…

    I LOVED THIS MOVIE.

    I have many thoughts!

    - They ramped up the romance way too quickly. I’m sure we all knew it was coming, but it escalated in a way that made the love seem much less believable. However, they are very sweet together.

    - Nyles said a few cryptic things before she followed him into the cave and no questions were asked... like how he knew her dad and step-mom were going to sing, how he knew Misty…
