What are people saying?

  • Mike Geraghty Jr.'s rating of the film 4 Little Girls

    One of the most emotionally shattering documentaries in film history. Watch as George Wallace, in all his miserable hatred, attempts to make amends for his past sins. Watch the remarkable testamony of the relatives of the victims - their faces etched in pain - as they deal with the repurcussions of an unforgivable crime. The fact this film did not win the Oscar for best documentary is in itself a crime.
