Cloud Atlas | ★★★★★★★

The movie revolves around six stories with roles that are performed by a small set of stars acting in different roles. It is based on the novel and the concerto of the same name. It took a while for me to catch on to all six stories as they are being told in unison. At first the flipping around was confusing but then things became clearer.

I think that the common thread in all stories can be voiced in one word - courage. Whether the issue was 17th century slavery or post-apocalyptic future civil rights, I loved that the movie showcased people with courageous convictions.

I was surprised that my attention was held for the entire three hours. When I saw how long it was I thought it would suffer from a lack of editing - it did not. I thought that the story lines held together and felt that the acting was pretty good.

I liked the movie and, on a scale of ten, give it ★★★★★★★.
