If what the world needs now is love, sweet love, have I got a documentary for the world!
Take a look at THREE KHMER FLOWERS. The story, from director Diane Mason, follows a woman named Jean Malmgren and her husband Jim Melvin as they travel to Cambodia to adopt an “older child,” not an infant. Older children – that is, ones beyond about the age of one or two – have less of a chance of getting adopted, which is so unfair to the kids.
When they arrive, they find the child originally matched to them is not available, but are offered a beautiful toddler instead. Of course they accept the toddler…but once they’re back in the United States, Jean still wishes she could have adopted an older child…
I don’t want to say anything more, because it will reveal too much about the movie, and this is a film well worth seeing. What the world needs now is more people like Jean Malmgren and Jim Melvin! Take a look, and by all means, enjoy this:
