MY BROTHER'S KEEPER (2020) Tribeca 2020
One of the best films at Tribeca is a portrait of former Guantánamo detainee, Mohamedou Ould Salahi, and his one-time American guard, Steve Wood. They formed a friendship that transcended the prison to become a true bond that grew past guard and prisoner to become a friendship that borders on brotherhood and changed their lives and those around them for the better.
Small jewel of a film shows the difference that good people can make within the lives of other people. Seeing how the basic goodness of these two men transcended borders, they simply respected each other as humans, is one of the most hopeful things you will see all year. An absolute must for too many reasons than I can go into here- this is glorious. Though all you need know is it will make you feel good.
