      In sharing this yesterday, I was surprised to find it greeted by controversy/pushback. I think that's interesting, and also a good thing.

      All I know is that this...made me think.

        Is the article or the film or both being greeted by pushback?

        Interesting perspective.

        Still haven’t seen the film. I feel I have already seen it via these articles though. Lol.

          Haha, mostly about the article. The movie itself is pretty wholesome.
