Craig Monahan’s beautiful Healing is my choice as the first movie you should see. The Australian movie director has captured the essence of the relationship between a man in a minimal security prison and the injured raptors whose rehabilitation he is responsible for. Their eventual release is dependent upon a complex set of circumstances, like his own. The cinemaphotography is absolutely beautiful with close ups of the owls and falcons. The movie is dedicated to the cinema photographer who died after completion of the movie. A moral theme of rehabilitation raises many questions in terms of who is ready to reenter society and who is not. The movie is in world wide release and hopefully will find a spot in the USA.
Overall, the movie was worth watching, a good action movie for kids and adults.
