sandracine's rating of the film Once Were Warriors

I've seen this film at least a dozen times; as brutal as it is, I still come away with some hope, due to daughter Grace's beautiful soul, and the Mother's dogged determination to save her family. Sad state of affairs for the aboriginal peoples in New Zealand, Australia, U.S., here in name a few. There were some truly lovely moments, and a outstanding cast.
