Exceptional! Almost as stellar as the film.

Episode: True story of The Woman King was almost as stellar as the film. It felt like the “extra” or “bonus” features that are always my favorite part of owning a copy of a movie. With that said, this episode is successful in serving to enrich the film goers experience. The Woman King is an EPIC landmark of a film. Thank you for showcasing it’s power, historical perspective, and triumph.
