I’m going to watch the movie, based on the real-life experience of Regina Kelly, tonight.
So far, it’s getting pretty good reviews. The negative reviews seem to focus on the film’s heavy-handed plot and lack of character development, which without having seen the film, I’d have to say is not entirely fair. There’s not much the filmmakers could do with the plot while still staying true to Kelly’s story. And sometimes, bad people don’t change, even after enduring an experience that ought to change them.
