Ripley's movie review

Ohhh, I just wanted to take Faron and shake him! Fascinating documentary about a fairly closed segment of society. Some things I knew, some things I didn't, all of it was interesting. I wish there had been more (or any) interviews with the parents but that likely wasn't the director's choice. Worth watching.
