I've always enjoyed Gina Torres in her TV roles (and Serenity).  I've heard that this was pretty good.

Sounds like an interesting film; definitely worth a look.
I've seen things you people wouldn't believe.
Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion.
I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate.
All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.
Time to die.

I would initially worry about this being a "downer" .... but with some critical acclaim it may actually be pretty interesting.

I love it when filmmakers take a truly horrific event and retell it on a more personal, intimate scale. It brings the audience - well, me, anyway - closer to the experience. I'd really like to see this.

Just an FYI we were given three copies to give away by Image.  I'll draw three names at random from everyone who posts in this thread between now and Friday October 8th.  Must be over 18 and have a US or Canadian address to win.

Sounds interesting. I hadn't heard of this movie before. Is there a Blu-Ray version of this or just DVD?

Just DVD. I'm supposed to receive a review copy for HTF, but it hasn't arrived yet.

Just sent it- thanks!  Never one to turn down a free DVD, thanks to the first winners who apparently didn't want it!
