A lovely story of love and family which also seamlessly captures race relations in the US in the 60s; implications which still feel poignant and important to today's culture.

I can't remember the last time I was this blown away by an animated movie. It's emotionally resonant, the story is interesting and beyond that, it takes full advantage of animation to be visually unique. It doesn't look, sound or feel like anything else and it's arguably one of the riskiest releases by one of the major studios last year.

Great direction from Gustav Möller and a top-notch performance from Jakob Cedergren.

Great subject and some fantastic interviews but some of the camera work is terrible and feels like it was shot by someone who has never held a camera in their lives which was distracting but didn't detract from the overall enjoyment factor of this doc which shines a much-deserved light on a superb artist who deserves far more recognition than she has received to date.
