On 10/4 Donna Cosmato wrote: This was a disappointing movie on many levels. While it may have been inspired by a true story, it could have told that story in a way that was understandable. The plot is hard to follow because the movie jumps from scene to scene in a disjointed fashion. Subplots are alluded to but never fully developed. ... The Least Among You (DVD) ISBN: 031398124498
