Should have been nominated for Academy Award
3 February 2019 | by excap-74279See all my reviews

I flew for a major airline for 35 years, I am now 79 years old. As in the Johnny Cash song, I have been everywhere, well most everywhere.

One of our destinations was Bombay, India now known as Mumbai. In the early 1970's, I was able to fly there with my seniority as a copilot. Bombay was full of interesting things to visit and see. The red light district was known as "The Cages", You could walk one of the major streets which bordered The Cages. I knew what the business was that was going on inside but I never understood the reality of the business until I saw the movie "SOLD". I am so happy that some people made this movie and that I was able to see it before I am no longer around. Thank You for the movie.
