"Nature delights in diversity. Why don't human beings?" - Lola Cola
12 June 2019 | by manneehaileySee all my reviews

I've watched this film dozens of times. It's an extremely powerful work. The timing of the filming, the choices and direction, and the rural country aesthetic are worthy of the title. I'll be watching it again soon.
