Sunshine

We watched a recording off of cable of the epic Sunshine. This story that revolves around 3 generations of a Hungarian, Jewish family, was interesting if not as rewarding as I would have hoped. There is a moviemaking stunt at work in the film. Ralph Fiennes stars as three different characters, one of each generation.

Fiennes manages to carry off the three characters, but I am not sure that it was actually necessary. At three hours long, this is a long movie. I found the length necessary for the treatment they were trying to give the story.

Ultimately, the story highlighted the fact that the majority can always decide to make someone an outcast and no amount of fighting or accommodation can alter that fact. On my scale of 1-100, I rate it an 80.
