What are people saying?

  • This is Jake Kath's rating of the film The Wise Kids

    This is what Glee tries to be. An intelligent and non-judgmental look at adolescence maturing while being filtered through religious fundamentalism. It is simply the human condition to question our existence. There is such care and compassion, that when an inevitable "coming out" scene occurs, it could have been contrived but was quite moving. No cynicism, at all in this movie. So refreshing!
