MOVIE: "In the Time of the Butterflies"

You are reading

I hear it's not true to the actual story.

Most movies stick to the less-than-two-hours formula these days. Much had to be left out.

And what was in it let viewers with no historical perspective learn a bit about Carribean and Latin American history.

It's skin crawling to watch, so soon after the earthquake in Haiti, knowing how the Dominicans historically feel about darker skinned people and Haitian culture.

I kept thinking of that pig in North Korean dictator, Kim Jong Il, and his perverse interest in looking up little girls' skirts.

I never knew Nov. 25 was an international day to commemorate stopping violence against women and I've been a feminist for over thirty years. Such a shame!

Long live all the butterflies, everywhere.
