Here’s one you should all add to your must-see list. I want to see this movie so terribly not only for the story of child soldiers in war torn Congo but for the young actress who has already won acclaim and awards for her performance. She’s only 16 and was actually one of the many homeless children of the slums of Kinshasa, Congo prior to being cast in this movie.
I had seen a preview a few weeks ago and was going to follow up here and was reminded of the young actress while watching tonight’s Oscars. Can you believe she only got her visa to attend the Oscars only a few days before the ceremony?

Watch the trailer below and you’ll see within the 90secs that this young lady is amazingly talented.
So happy that she and the movie are getting the recognition they deserve.
