Gimme Shelter – Must See of the Year

I didn’t even recognize the well-known actress in this until the very end of the trailer – and I don’t want to give it away so will leave you to watch this. But – glorious. Every bit of this is achingly real and a reflection of so many of the realities of the world we live in, from the brokenness and yet necessity of the foster care system, to how our loved ones fail us over and over sometimes, to how your parents can be your enemy, to the destructive nature of drugs and ongoing poverty, to the flashes of hope that filter through the system sometimes, mostly, always, through individuals.

Yes. I am watching this.
