“…Freda is actually based on a real woman who happens to be the oldest living person with a rare form of Muscular Dystrophy…”
When Bella shows up, there are also some computer graphics involved. The use of the green screens is easily noticed because it tends to look quite fake just about every time Bella appears on screen. Now, this could be due to the budget of a smaller film, which is understandable, but I feel that the CG does not necessarily have to be used in certain parts.
At the end of the film, it’s noted that the character Freda is actually based on a real woman who happens to be the oldest living person with a rare form of Muscular Dystrophy. She is an accomplished writer, a university professor, and was a human rights worker at one point. All very admirable accolades for someone with a rare disease let alone for anyone.
In all honesty, what I would have rather watched than this sometimes confusing film was a film strictly about the woman that inspired the Freda character. It seems like it would have been a more inspiring story.
