Review of Forgotten Ellis Island
"There are times when the crew here at on TVonlineReviews feels conflicted about recommending this or that PBS documentary....Then, a documentary like tonight’s Forgotten Ellis Island comes along – a film so well made, so beautiful and so informative that we feel there’s nothing else for us to say, other than: Watch it." - TVonlineReview, 2/2/09
