The story of the Newtown massacre has been told before. It is the story of the tragic shooting of 20 young children and six adults at the Sandy Hook Elementary School. This movie does not tell the story of the massacre itself, but the story of the people who have been affected by it. We are treated to a glimpse of the horror that was the Newtown shooting. The movie is extremely well made and the actors are brilliant. The director and the writer have done a great job at telling the story of the people who were affected by the tragedy. I highly recommend this movie to anyone who is interested in the Newtown shooting.

This documentary was awesome. The way it was shot and the story behind it was very well done. The way it made you feel like you were there is what a documentary should do. It was just amazing. The people that are interviewed were very interesting and I'm sure you will get to know them very well. I loved how they had a few scenes from the actual shooting and showed the reactions of the other people. It was really interesting and it showed how everyone was affected by this horrible event. I highly recommend this film and I hope that more people watch it. I don't think that this is a film that should be watched by the general public but if you want to know more about what happened in Newtown, you should watch this.

I have been following this story for many years. I was not surprised to see that this movie was coming out. It was only a matter of time. This movie was very good. It was about the whole story, and all the important things that happened. I recommend this movie to anyone who has any interest in the story. I know I will be watching it again and again.

My wife and I went to the screening of this film at the SF Museum of Film. It is the first film we have seen from the film festival that was not a Sundance Film Festival winner. We saw the film in the theater and were very disappointed by it. The film was very slow and had no plot. It was very slow and boring. It was a very long film and not worth the time we spent to go see it. I would not recommend this film to anyone. It is not worth the money we spent to see it.

I was so very excited to see this film. I knew it was going to be a lot different than I thought it would be. I thought it was going to be about the kids and how they were going to talk about the tragedy. What I got was a very personal look into the grief and the struggle for the survivors. It was a very emotional film. The only problem I had with the film was the fact that there was very little information about the actual events. They didn't go into too much detail about the people who were killed and what happened. But they did show a lot of the community and how they were coping. I would recommend this film to anyone who is looking for a more personal look into the events. It was very emotional and I think it was very well made. I was really impressed with the way the film was made and I think it is a very important film. I think it should be given more attention. I think it is very important to show the story of the people who lost their lives and what they went through. It was very well done and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for a good film about the events.

After watching the movie, I was appalled that this country continues to let the mentally ill and the mentally ill alone. I think the movie did a great job of explaining the concept of mental illness, and the effect it has on people. I think the movie was very realistic and made me want to go back to the hospital. The movie was a good portrayal of the mental illness and the impact it has on the person. It was a good movie and I would recommend it to anyone.

This is a great documentary about the shooting of the elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut, which occurred on December 14, 2012. It was an emotional and heart-wrenching experience for all involved. This documentary will be very difficult to watch for the parents of the victims, and will certainly bring back the memories of the victims' families. It is extremely difficult to watch the emotions and suffer of the parents of the victims. The events that took place in Newtown that day are still fresh in the minds of everyone in the United States. The documentary is informative and interesting, and will definitely give you the answers you need. It is a very good documentary that is well worth watching.

I was completely lost while watching this film. I found it hard to understand why it was shown on the History Channel. I also was confused as to why it was filmed in a different location. I can't help but feel that this film is a propaganda piece for the NRA. The film is full of clips from NRA videos that show their support of the Second Amendment and their arguments against gun control. I also found the voice-over voice-over on the audio of the NRA videos to be annoying. The only reason I gave this film an 8 was because of the fact that I am not a gun owner, but I did understand the video content and the content of the audio. This film is not a documentary, and does not show the facts of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. It shows the NRA's stance against gun control. This film is a propaganda piece. I am sure that the NRA is not happy about this film and it is likely that the NRA is trying to make a political statement about gun control. However, this film is not an objective documentary and it is biased.

As I was watching the film, I was stunned by how much I found myself relating to it. This is an extraordinary film about the most tragic event in US history, and how the aftermath is still felt in today's world. The film was well made and the cast was excellent, especially the children. The story is told through the eyes of a 5 year old girl named Sasha. I was surprised by the amount of violence shown in the film, and the intense scenes of violence in the film were disturbing and upsetting. I think it is a film that should be seen by all, especially those who are not familiar with the events of that day. It is a powerful film, and I think all people should see it.

I have watched this movie about 10 times and every time I watch it, it gets better and better. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in the shooting deaths of many young people at Sandy Hook Elementary School, and is concerned about the future of our country. I highly recommend this movie, but be warned, it may make you angry and upset. I think this movie is very well made, and I can't understand how some people could not understand the importance of this movie. I think that the only reason that people have not seen this movie is because they are afraid of the truth. I think that everyone should see this movie, because it is the only way to understand the events that occurred at Sandy Hook Elementary School, and the future that our country will have.

I have a lot of respect for those who have been affected by the Sandy Hook shooting and the subsequent Congressional debate. My hope is that this documentary will give people a better understanding of what it was like to live through this tragedy. The movie has a lot of interesting footage from both sides of the debate. There is also a lot of information about the politics of gun control and the background of the NRA. The movie is very balanced in its coverage of both sides of the debate. The documentary also tries to get some insight into what the public thinks about the gun control debate. I would have liked to have seen a little more of the background of the NRA, but this is probably a small complaint. Overall, the movie is worth seeing. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who has been affected by this tragedy.

I'm a little surprised that this movie was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary. It's a good movie. But the reason it was nominated is because it has a good message, and the movie is very good at showing how people can be affected by tragedies. The movie is not made for the general public, but rather for the people who knew and loved the victims and their families. I'm not a political person, but I feel that this movie should have been nominated for Best Documentary.

I am not a gun guy, I don't really like guns, but I was surprised how much I could relate to this documentary. I'm a gun owner and I saw the documentary and I was moved. I felt like I was there with them. The film was well done and very entertaining. It had an easy to understand narrative and it did not feel like it was edited in a hurry. I would definitely recommend this documentary to anyone who likes to understand the issue of gun violence.

The best documentary of the year. I watched this documentary for the first time a couple of days ago and I was completely blown away. The story of Sandy Hook Elementary School was portrayed in a very realistic way. The camera work was done in a very natural way and the whole movie is shot in a very close up style. The documentary was done in the best way possible. It was very well paced and the story was told in a very realistic way. I was very impressed with the movie and I will definitely be buying the DVD. The documentary was very well done and I would recommend this documentary to anyone who is looking for a good documentary.

I don't think I've ever seen such a compelling and unifying documentary about the tragedy of a single family in a small town. It's a true story, but it's also a story of a community and a community's resilience. I watched the film while driving home from work, and it was so powerful that I didn't stop thinking about it for hours. I also had the opportunity to interview some of the family members and the sheriff. The footage is heartbreaking, and the emotions are raw and raw. You feel the pain, the anger, the sorrow, and the hope. It's a powerful, heartbreaking film that really brings the whole community together. The only other documentary that I can think of that compares to this one is "The Thin Blue Line."

I can't believe how much I enjoyed this documentary. It was a good look at the school and what happened there. I was surprised that the school wasn't talked about more. It was a little too close to home and the news coverage was spotty. I liked the interviews with the principal, the principal's wife, the superintendent, the principal's mother, the principal's son, the principal's sister, the principal's son's father, the principal's daughter, the principal's daughter's father, the principal's daughter's mother, the principal's daughter's mother, and the superintendent's wife. I also liked the pictures of the school and the school grounds. I think this documentary is a good look at what happened. The film has some spoilers. If you haven't seen this documentary, I recommend that you do. I think it's better than what's been on TV. I really liked this documentary. It was informative and entertaining.

It is hard to believe that the first one hour of this documentary is devoted to a series of interviews with the actors who play the lead roles in the movie. However, when you get to the last hour, the movie becomes a little bit more focused on the main character, 20-year-old Dylan Klebold. This is a powerful film about a terrible event, and it is not a happy one. There is a lot of anger, and a lot of sadness. But you are not able to be sad with the movie, because it is about a real person who lived and died. There is not a happy ending for him, and he is not able to come to terms with his death. I think this movie is great, but I do not think it is a good movie. It is not about Columbine, or the Columbine Massacre. It is not about the Columbine Massacre. It is about a guy who was so angry, so obsessed with violence, that he decided to kill other people. And I think it is a very sad story. But it is also a very powerful movie. You really do not want to be the one who ends up in the movie.

I enjoyed this film very much, but I must say I was surprised by how much I liked it. I'm a liberal, but I was surprised by how many of the people in the audience were leftists and how they talked about the film. I thought the people in the audience were intelligent and did a great job of bringing their beliefs to the film. It's a documentary that goes back to the time of the massacre and brings it to the present day. It was very informative and made me feel that I knew what happened. I did not have any problems with the film, but I did have a problem with how much it focused on the leftist ideology. I think a lot of the people who attended this film did not want to hear the facts. I think it was a great film, but I think it would have been better if it had focused more on the real facts. If the facts were brought to the forefront, it would have made the film a lot more effective.

The documentary is about the 9/11 attacks and the effect it had on the people who were there. It's a very well-done documentary and the director and producer did a great job of presenting all of the important information that we need to know about the attacks. I'm a little surprised that the director was unable to produce a DVD version of the documentary, as it is very well-made. There are many scenes that are very emotional and disturbing. I think that if you have been in a room with someone who was at the attack, you will definitely feel what they are feeling. I would recommend this documentary to anyone who is interested in the events of September 11, 2001.

I really liked this film. It was the first one I watched and it stayed with me for days. It is a powerful film that shows the brutality of a system that allows it to happen. It shows the children and their families as they face the problems of a society that has no regard for them. The director did a great job of showing the horrible things that happened. It is not just the killing of the children, but the torture and the abuse of the children. The director shows us a lot of the people involved and it is really amazing. I highly recommend this film.

It's not often that I see a documentary about a tragedy of this magnitude, but it's something I've never seen before. And it's something I'm glad I saw. I thought it was very powerful and emotional. It brought me to tears many times. It's a must see. The documentary is about the shooting of 20 year old Adam Lanza. It's a very good documentary that will make you feel for the victims and their families. I also think it's a great movie and a great documentary. I give it an A+.

I have just watched this film at the New York Film Festival, and I am so grateful that I did not see this film in the theater. I am a big fan of this documentary, and it was hard not to be emotionally affected by this film. The documentary does not focus on the events of the tragedy itself, but rather on the people involved in the event. While the film does not cover the actual events of the shooting itself, it does tell the story of the families and friends of the victims. It is a beautiful film, and it is so moving to see how the film portrays these families and friends. While I do not agree with everything the documentary says, I feel like it is very honest and true. I am glad that this film was made, because it will help bring some closure to the families and friends of the victims. This film is a must see, and I can not wait to see it again.

I was thoroughly entertained by this film. I thought it was well-made and well-acted. I have seen the documentary about the shooting of the kids, and was impressed by the reporting. I had no idea that the shooting happened in a high school until the film came on TV, and the events were reported very well. I thought the film was accurate, and was glad to see the events from a different perspective.

I'm not sure if it's just me, but I really love this documentary. I think it's very honest and informative. The acting is great and the director shows us how the "high school boys" were affected by the massacre. He shows us the incredible hatred and violence that existed in the town. It really makes you think about how one individual can make a huge impact on the lives of so many people. This film will keep you on your toes. I think that this is a very important documentary that should be shown to everyone. I think that the director and the actors are very talented and should be recognized for this film.
