Sometimes reality is even stranger than fiction, which is certainly the case for this Sundance award-winning documentary. Identical triplets are separated at birth and become adopted by different families. This is, they don't know that they are triplets. They are reunited years later and the whole world is astounded by the story. However, there is more to this reunion than smiles and hugs. A huge secret is also about to be unearthed. Who says all the drama lies in big blockbusters?
Just in case you hadn't heard enough about the U.S. border with Mexico lately, here's a film all about the involved drug smuggling...sort of. In a case involving such, an FBI agent seeks out a mysterious operative. Things get wild when this operative manages to take captive the daughter of someone involved in the drug ring with the soul intention of making things worse. Your palms will sweat as the team wonders what they will do with the little girl now and what the drug ring will do to them.
From breaking out of prison to making sure the system is safe, this former prisoner has worked his way around the security system. With his plan, no one should be getting out. So what is he to do when one of his colleagues goes missing? It forces this former criminal to go back into the underworld of the place that almost once broke him. Get ready for some shots fired and more than a fair share of violent drama.
In the same week that Laura Ingalls Wilder has been criticized for her portrayal of Native Americans in her writing comes a different, unheard true story on the subject. A New York painter wants to meet Sitting Bull the Native American chief, but the process to do so is no easy feat. She must first stand-off with an Army officer who wants war with the Native Americans. At least we're more peaceful in our country right now (as if...).
And our ⭐️ TOP PICK ⭐️ ...
