However, the eldest is allowed to become engaged to an unprincipled young man, primarily for the financial advantages it will bring the mother, Bernarda. Jealousy and envy ensues among the other daughters.

Thomas W (it) wrote: Mitt is a new documentary about recent GOP presidential candidate, Mitt Romney. It is a personal doc that was filmed in cooperation with the family over the past several years beginning with his failed run as a relative moderate for the party nomination in 2008 when he lost to John McCain. I enjoyed watching this and I did learn more about Mitt the man but I don't think it is as good or as entertaining as last year's political doc Our Nixon which was also composed of intimate video footage between the man and his closest advisors. Mitt's advisors in this sense are his family ... all of which come across as multi-dimensional and human (something they were never really able to do on the campaign trail). Saying that ... Mitt still is not an overly exciting individual and he is still rather robotic simply because I think he is truly concerned with what others think of him. He is all prim and proper and only rarely breaks from that mold ... but that is when Mitt (the doc) shines the most. Mitt chases garbage floating around on their hotel balcony when anybody else could do it ... he takes this upon himself because he doesn't believe he is above it. The film does gives us glimpses of the man his family dearly loves but he is still nearly too reserved to fully come across to outsiders. I think he is a perfectly nice individual who isn't overly passionate about a lot of things. While the film makes him look better, it doesn't really do the same for his wife, Ann, who still comes across rather cold. If the public had been privy to this before the election, I doubt it would have really changed anything as Mitt's damning "47%" comment -- that is referenced here in Mitt -- never allowed him to recover. But ... he erred. Mitt is human ... and most important of all is that he has a (large) family that loves him very much.

George I (mx) wrote: not the greatest movie, not the greatest acting, and not nearly as gritty and graphic as it seems to attempt to be this very raw kinda movie, the story however feels almost as if there is no story other than lets see six peoples lives just convinently intertwine with one another and how life is just a one vicious cycle. the problem with this is that is without a doubt a good premise maybe one that has been done to death but good none the less, the problem here is that it needed to be a more aggresive, raw, and dark film with a sense of hope at the end even when the evil cycle was prepared to start again. that is the true flaw of this movie. it did however hold my interest and it can hold most peoples but this is one that if you hadnt seen it its really just ok im sure youll find a similiar movie that is most likely better than this one.

There are a few light laughs to be had and the concept of a helpful and forgiving community wins me over. Good message that brought a small tear to my eye. Wish I had watched it at Christmas. Canned ham? Is that an American thing?
John A (ca) wrote: An Excellent Piece Of Horror Cinema, That Has A Low But Gory Body Count. This Modern Werewolf Film Focuses On Sisters Ginger (Katherine Isabelle) & Brigitte (Emily Perkins). The Sisters Are Bullied By Their Fellow Pupils Because Of Their Morbid Obsessions. Ginger Is Attacked By A Wolf, & Slowly Starts To Show Signs Of Strange Nocturnal Behaviour. This Film Is A Wonderfully Written B-Movie, Which Boasts An Unknown Cast, That Are Great In Their Respective Roles. The Film Also Links This Change With Puberty, Making The Attacks Seem More Vicious. This Is Also Excellently Directed. Of Course Their Are Flaws, But There Hardly Noticeable. An Excellent Film & Probably The Best Werewolf Film Since The Mid 80's.
