Director Lysa Heslov's documentary, "Served Like a Girl, provides a candid look at several American women as they transition from active duty to civilian life after serving tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan. Our wounded U.S. female service personnel often return to a stark reality, one that is rarely discussed or considered. Struggling with PTSD, homelessness, broken families, serious illness, physical injuries, and the aftermath of military sexual abuse, these amazing women find ways to adapt and overcome debilitating challenges through participation in the "Ms. Veteran America" competition. Guided by event founder and veteran, Jas Boothe, the women leverage their experiences gained through competition to recover the parts of themselves and their personal identities they had lost on the battlefield. Called "Engaging, Honest and Powerful," this film is a beautiful tapestry interlaced with poignant moments, social commentary, and humor.

I was the only one who saw this film. I thought it was interesting. It's a pretty interesting story, and it's not a film that is solely about sex, but about gender and how it's so intertwined with relationships. I thought that the idea of a man being a gay man was interesting. It was a little hard to watch at times, but it was a great idea to tell the story of the father's reaction to his son's sexuality. The only problem was that it seemed like the film went on for way too long. I was glad when it ended. The film doesn't have any really big surprises, but it's an interesting story. I liked it, and I would recommend it.

If you haven't heard of it, you should. It's a film about a group of 14-year-old girls from a small village in England who have been bullied and harassed by their schoolmates. They've been called names, spat on and used as "paedophiles" by their classmates. One of the girls even had a girl in her class take her panties off. That's right. This is a documentary that is actually about the abuse that the girls have had to go through. The story of the girls is amazing and moving. It's really something to see. The director has a great eye for detail. There are many things that she does that really make you think. She focuses on the girls, her friend and her parents. This is a great documentary. It really makes you think about the way we treat each other and how we can hurt others. It really gets to the core of why we don't want to go to school. If you're a parent and you think you should be there for your kids, then this is a great documentary. It really gives you an understanding of why it is that your kids are bullied. It also shows you how they're not the only ones in the world who have problems at school. It really makes you think. I really recommend this film.

This is the only documentary I've ever seen that is entirely about the journey of a single mother in the inner city. This is a fascinating film, and should be seen by anyone who has a desire to see the world through the eyes of a single mother. There are some personal moments that may not be comfortable for some people, but are very important for the people who are watching. This is a film that is able to capture the essence of the struggles that single mothers face every day. I believe this film should be considered a must see for anyone interested in the struggles of single mothers. The acting is excellent, the dialogue is realistic, and the film is very well made. I believe that this film has the potential to be a film that will help change the world, and I hope that this film does more than just change the world.

A documentary about a girl who was sexually abused by her father as a child, and her journey in healing. Her story is heartbreaking and you will feel like you are a part of her journey. The documentary is very well done and well-paced, and very well done. The cinematography was excellent, and the sound was very effective. The production value is very high, and the overall quality is very high. It is very well-done and very well-directed. There are many people who are dealing with similar situations in their lives, and the documentary gives you a great sense of how important it is to be able to go to the police, and to have a trusted person who can help you and help you get through your emotional trauma. I highly recommend this documentary. This is a must-see for anyone who is dealing with any type of trauma. It is a must-see for anyone who is going through a sexual abuse or incest.

This documentary about the life of Louise & Melissa, the couple who have been married for 30 years, and the great challenge of getting the state of their marriage recognized by the courts, and the impact this has had on their family. It is a must see for anyone who is a spouse, or just a friend or family member. The film is very funny, and well told. It is a very personal story that is touching and emotional. The two lead actors, Mark and Renee, have done a wonderful job in bringing this story to the screen. The story is worth seeing!

What a tremendous film! I read the book a few years ago and was very impressed with the writing. I was very surprised that the film didn't go into much detail, except to say that the book was a lot more graphic and gritty. The film is about the lives of the women in the movie, but it is really about the women. What is interesting is that it's very hard to know how the women feel about themselves and the world. I don't know if the film makers could have done more with this material, but I was so impressed with the subject matter. I can't wait for the DVD to come out!

As I watched this documentary, I couldn't help but feel sympathy for the man. The circumstances were not easy for him to overcome and he didn't get to see his daughter grow up. But he did the best he could with what he had. I was moved to tears at one point, and I think he would have been even more so if I had seen this film. He was a remarkable man and one that will be missed by all who knew him.

This is a documentary about the adventures of the 3 American soldiers in the Lebanon and their experiences during the Lebanon War. The three soldiers are friends who met during the war, one at the University of Michigan, the other in the US Navy. They meet and bond as they both have a passion for women and they all have the same goal: to go to Europe and work on a boat, and they all fall in love. There is no doubt that the three were a normal guys who were never in trouble with the law. They had no problems with their parents or with the other adults in their lives. The film shows the normal highs and lows of their lives and their friendship. I thought the film was very well done and made a great story. I would recommend it to anyone.

I don't want to give away the entire plot of this film, so I will just say that it is not a happy movie, and it's not one that will make you feel good. However, it is a must see for anyone who is a feminist, and anyone who is a person who wants to see more about men and women in the media. It's well worth watching.

The subject matter is very important, and I'm sure some of us who have had a problem with our own parents' or grandparents' behavior have been searching for help. I saw this documentary and I thought it was extremely well done. I found the people in the story to be very real and very real. They all had a common problem - they all had to deal with someone or something that made them unhappy. I think they all had a very hard time dealing with it and most of them were just so caught up in their own feelings, that they didn't really see the bigger picture. This movie is a good introduction to the subject matter, and it will probably be a very good introduction to other people who have a similar problem. It is also a good example of how not to get help, and how to treat someone who needs help. A great documentary.

I'm not a doctor or anything. I'm just a regular guy. I'm pretty sure that I can relate to most of the issues that these girls are dealing with. I know that a lot of these girls feel like their lives are on the line because of the addiction that they're trying to kick. I think they need to be able to have some guidance in order to feel like they can make a decision about their future. I would definitely recommend this documentary to anyone. I would definitely suggest that you watch it.

I have seen this movie twice now, and I still love it. It is so true to life and I can't say enough about it. This is one of those movies that really makes you think and it doesn't fall into any kind of common cliches. I think it is great. It is very inspiring and I think everyone should watch it. It will show you that no matter what you are going through, you can overcome it and that there are many different ways to look at life. I think that it is important to watch this movie because you will learn a lot from it and that will make you feel good about your life and make you want to be a better person in the long run. If you are looking for a good movie to watch, then this is the one. It is very inspiring and makes you think.

I was a teenager in the early 70's. This movie is a must for everyone. It's a unique look at a time in my life that I wish I had never experienced. It's true that the movie is a little slow in parts, but the more you see it, the more you realize that you should not let the "slow" parts keep you from enjoying the whole thing. There are a few scenes in the movie that are a bit over the top, but the real essence of the movie is the storytelling. It's a story about one girl who is misunderstood, but is misunderstood by others. It's a story about the challenges of growing up and growing up in the 60's. It's a story about one girl's struggle to be who she wanted to be. It's a story about the power of one girl to change the world. This movie is a must for anyone. I hope that more people will see it and that it will become a part of their lives. This is a movie that I will be proud to have.

An excellent documentary by a non-professional film maker about the relationship between the daughter of a young boy and a psychologist, and the young girl's 'career' in the industry. The psychologist, while clearly the hero of the film, is at the same time the villain of the film, and the daughter is the girl in the middle of the story. The relationship between the mother and daughter is very complicated and at times, un-appealing. The parents seem to have very little in common, and the daughter's mother is not really sympathetic either. The father seems to have no desire to understand his daughter, and it is not clear if his daughter has ever had any sort of relationship with him. This film is worth watching.

A documentary that does an excellent job of conveying the complexities of gender roles and how they can be both positive and negative. The film follows a young girl named "A" (played by "Tanya Ainsworth") and her older brother "S" (played by "Bobby Lee Jones") from the age of 7 to 18 as they try to cope with the realities of growing up. The boys' parents don't really understand or accept the fact that their sons are gay, so they're trying to find a way to accept the two boys and help them make sense of their feelings. The story moves along at a very slow pace and the scenes are very well filmed and edited. Although this is a documentary, there is a lot of information about the boys' lives, and there are some interesting interviews with the parents. This is an important documentary that shows a lot of insight and how gender roles can be very positive and negative. I highly recommend this movie to anyone who has a gender or sexual preference. This is a very thought-provoking film that shows the power of family and the positive and negative effects of the ways people express and define their gender. The director does an excellent job of conveying the importance of family in these situations.
