American Promise ★★★★★

The most emotional powerful film I have ever scene. Period.

I was lucky enough to be able to catch a screening of this movie during the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival and was attracted specifically to the fact it charted not only one but two lives from 5 to 18. That by itself is an incredible achievement. What makes this even more powerful is that this film had so many moments that had occurred in my own life right down to a T. Really opened my eyes to the universality of growing up and of raising children.

Really beautiful, honest film that everyone should watch.
