This film did make me laugh and I'd recommend it for adults.
This was quite bizarre. At one point I stopped watching because I thought it was just too strange. But then I got interested in the characters. Little by little enough was revealed to make me want to see how it all played out. There was no explanation about why the lead character never wore pants, just tighty-whities. I was curious about that.
I didn't watch this but I did check it out to confirm that it is described for people with visual disabilities. this is a helpful feature to folks losing their site or even to better understand what's happening in the plot for those who have 20/20 vision.
This book revealed some horrific things going on at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Mahvish Khan tells the stories of wrongly accused detainees and her time spent as a Habeas lawyer for some of these men. I'd heard the author on NPR so I was curious to read it. It's disturbing, held my attention and made me angry enough to write a letter to a government official.
This was a fantastic film. I was really impressed with the extra features that gave some of the back story of how the film was made, plus someof the screen tests. I loved the book as a teen and the film as an adult is just as satisfying.
