Hope ★★★★½

A devastating heart wrenching drama based on a true story of a 8-year old girl, raped and beaten by a drunk 57-year-old man. The first hour is a tearjerker and makes your heart heavy with pain and shock. The movie doesn’t try to manipulate the emotions or divert into criticizing the failing legal system but instead portrays the pain and suffering of the victim and its family straight. The second hour tenderly showcases about mental healing and the moments of humanity, compassion among each human and fellow community members turning into a spiritually uplifting drama. The screenplay and the performances from the cast were excellent. Love and compassion are the essential tools to overcome the evil in the world. The movie sheds light on the meaningful aspects of life brimming with hope.
