This is the chief feature film, ever.

“By and by, we will not be able to fix it, yet you damn certain can’t dismiss it now. This is, taking everything into account, I think our Diary of Anne Plain [The Diary of a Young Girl].

This tells everyone what happened. It’s everything except a made-up story, it’s essentially current real factors.

This went down, and this is how it went down, and to this end it went down. Is this great with you?”
