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.
