  • By far the film's most interesting subject is the king's eldest daughter, 18-year-old Princess Sikhanyiso, who likes to be known as Pashu. She's a self-styled rapper who goes to a Catholic college in California and acts like the spoiled rich kid that she is. show more

  • Intelligent but incomplete-feeling documentary. show more

  • It is a shame the film doesn't cast a wider net into deeper political waters – the outrage is barely scratched in this production. show more
