Those Who Wish Me Dead Movie Review
Cast somewhat against type, Angelina Jolie is one of the boys as part of a rough around the edges gang of firefighters plying their trade in the open forests of Wyoming.

The film studies the class system of the times as well as the impact that the church had on the young orphan’s life. It ...
