Goofs

In the last Christmas Carol scene with the group of carolers, the girl on the far right side is seen in different arm poses. Thru 3-4 cuts, you can see her hand near her neck as if she's holding onto the collar of her shirt, the next cut, she is crossing her arms. This happens about 3-4 times. We can see there were obvious cuts in the filming. See more »

Powerful movie
20 December 2015 | by waitingsharkSee all my reviews

This is my all-time favorite! They are poor, they might get lost, they are at the bottom of the society, but they are brave and dare to love, to live. This film inspired and encouraged me at those gray days. I saw it a couple of times and I still want to see it soon. 2 years ago, I finally got to see it at off-Broadway. It was as touching and powerful as the movie if it was not more. After all, the movie is an adaptation of the play. I think I cried till the end of the play after the intermission... The music in this movie fits a lot with the theme. Lyrics are delicately written. You do not need to be a rock music lover to like this movie. You can not miss this one.
