About the film:
A Walk to Beautiful tells the stories of five Ethiopian women who endure devastating injuries arising from obstructed labor during childbirth and journey to the Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital to reclaim their lost dignity. Rejected by their husbands and ostracized by their communities, these young women are abandoned to lives of loneliness and shame. The trials they endure—and their attempts to rebuild their lives—tell a universal story of hope, courage, and transformation. Through the women’s own eyes, and in their own voices, a larger story is revealed, that of the seemingly intractable problems facing women in the developing world, including under-nutrition, child marriage, and lack of obstetric care.

I saw LA Confidential six times in the theater. That would be my penrosal best if it wasn't for The Empire Strikes Back. My brother and I were so crazy about that movie when we were kids that our parents to took us to see it about a dozen times (no exaggeration) when it was in first run. I've seen it a half dozen or so more times since then thanks to the re-releases and various special screenings. I'll never see a movie more times on the big screen than I've seen Empire !The other movies I've seen the most are classics that I've been watching at home every so often since I was first old enough to watch them. Movies like Stagecoach, The Court Jester, and The Adventures of Robin Hood. Relatively more recent favorites are Yojimbo and The Mission (the Johnnie To film), which I think I must watch pretty close to once a year.
