Bhutto: The Film offers that life to the viewer in an intelligent, provocative package. Let's hope that Yellow Pad Productions and Icon TMI find a marketing niche for this worthy effort.
I viewed the screener twice, because this film deserves more than a reviewer's "insight."
This statement is from the Producer, Duane Baughman:
As much as this film resonates with the entire world, I would like it to empower women and young girls everywhere with the message: If there are times when you think the world is against you, think of Benazir, who came from a country where the law dictates that women come second, and honor killings are LEGAL. Yet in her 54 short years, Benazir stared down the dictator who killed her father, restored democracy to her country, and shattered the glass ceiling in Pakistan forever. Something that's never been done in America.
