A feminist's documentary about men's (human) rights.

A refreshing piece of work, with the intellectual morals to actually talk to the men's rights advocates being talked about. The contrast between "the sides" is truly astonishing.

See also Groundhog Day - (1993 movie), maybe even Unbreakable - (2000 movie).
