    I watched this movie a couple of days ago and it broke my heart but also lifted my spirit. It broke my heart to know that there are children who can't go to school because their parents don't have the money. It broke my heart to know that there are places that don't have public libraries. God bless Chiwetel Ejiofor for bringing this story to the screen. I pray that things will improve for the children of Malawi.

    I think it's fair to say I'm going to be disliking anything Netflix comes out with from now on just because they cancelled Daredevil, Punisher, and Jessica Jones.
    Ya'll are whack.

      WhipLickingScientist it was Netflix’s decision to cancel those shows not Disney or marvel. So fuck them all!

    • iberdeber

      It wasnt their fault that they cancelled those shows. They had a contract with Disney to make the shows, and Disney refused to renew it because they want to make their own streaming service and take all of their stuff off of Netflix. But that hasnt happened as of now. But it wasnt Netflix's fault.
      Unless you were being sarcastic then hahahaha but for real ive been seeing this kinda stuff mentioning these marvel shows and i understand the anger but again it isnt Netflix's fault and people ignoring that makes me angry.
      Thank you for coming to my TED talk.

    Ok ok ok. He read instructions from a book. Everyone can pretty much do what this boy did. Frankly, I'd probably do the same if I was in the same situation. But I'm not. We're not. Most of us live in a privileged place.
