(4 out of 5 stars)

"I saw this title at the library and checked it out. Wow! Both of the features are very moving. The first one is the fact-based story of a young girl and her brother who are accosted on their way home from school. She's sprayed with white shoe polish. There's a subplot involving her brother's dealing with the attention she gets afterward and the guilt that he feels for having run away during the attack. I'd have liked to see the assailants punished in the film, but that wasn't really the focus.
The second involves a young lady describing her upbringing since her mother's incarceration. Champagne is very upbeat in her descriptions and helps the viewer to appreciate his or her advantages.

I liked the films very much.
