5 Summer Documentaries You May Want to See

Published On June 27, 2013 | By Christa Schueler | Entertainment, Movies

I’m the first to admit that I don’t often go to the theater to watch a documentary; it’s either a children’s film (because I have two young kids), a “date” movie with the hubby, or a chic flick with the gals.  When I think of a documentary, the following words come to mind: educational, serious, too real.  In other words, instead of entertainment, I get a big dose of reality.  Who wants that?  But lately, I’ve been wondering if perhaps I need that dose of reality, at least once in a while.  After all, these filmmakers have something to say, a story to tell and perhaps a message to give.

Here are 5 documentaries releasing this summer that have been getting some “buzz” because they’re that good.  You may want to check them out.
