First point. I haven’t cried at a movie this much in a long time.  This is one powerful story of overcoming obstacles and achieving great success.  Overcoming prejudice, overcoming the star-maker machinery, staying within one’s family values.  I did not realize the Williams sisters grew up in a strong Jehovah’s witness family.  There are various things I would strongly disagree with the JWs about, but not their emphasis on family and core family values, and not their insistence on following… Read more
