Review: 'Nicky's Family' wastes a compelling story of heroism
There's a great story at the heart of Matej Minac's documentary "Nicky's Family," if only it were allowed to be told unvarnished. In the 1930s, Englishman Nicholas Winton took it upon himself to rescue more than 650 Czech and Slovak children from the encroaching horrors of Nazism, a herculean feat of willful humanitarianism that stemmed from just one man's triggered conscience.
