    This trailer sent a couple of chills down my spine. I had seen it earlier this week, and as you say it promises to be a powerful film. Can’t wait to see this one 😊

      It should be good. I respect Jolie’s humanitarian work, even though some of her work as a director could be a bit disastrous – “By the Sea”. We will see what happens here.

    The first think I thought of was how much we fault our soldiers when they kill children, these kids can be as lethal as the adults, if not more so because their deadliness comes from the hesitation one might have to hurt a child. This is a sad, chilling tale but it also brings an awareness that children in other places do not have childhoods. They are brought up to do unspeakable things. It is an injustice and a conundrum for our military forces.
