A refection of the original Documentary

I had to get this movie almost as soon as it came out on DVD. I was totally in love with the original documentary and wanted to see how this movie would hold up against it's inspiration. As far as the reenactments from the original documentary, they were done excellently and very accurately. The rest of the movies tells much of the younger years of both women as mother and daughter. It fills in a lot of blanks that could not be shown, only half explained by the women in the documentary. It sheds light on how they ended up in poverty. The acting is superb! This movie held my attention throughout.
