Elle Logo

“Imagine a documentary so smart it sweeps any resistance into its own story by tackling difficult questions, a film so loving that, by the end, you care passionately about the filmmakers and their indomitable subjects: Ethel, now ninety-four, who escaped the South Carolina sharecropper fate of her family, and recently deceased Martha, who left behind the Third Reich in 1936.”
