A must-see movie: Dear Zachary

Last night, my friend and I decided to skip the halloween festivities (although we did get to see some good old fashioned door-to-door trick or treating in the village!) and go see this documentary, which is getting rave reviews from all over.

We had an extra special treat in that this was the theatrical premiere in New York - so the director and filmmaker was present in the theater after the showing for a Q&A. The theater people had to kick us out after an hour because we were so engrossed in hearing more of his story.

If you live in or near a city where this film will be showing, I highly recommend making the trip. It's one of those life-changing films - that uniquely captures the emotional journey of a family. It made me appreciate everything that parents do for their kids - and gave a glimpse of the unbreakable bond of love.

Here's the AMNY review:
