"My Perestroika" Children of the Soviet Culture learn to grow up....

For those seeking more serious fare, **My Perestroika** opens tomorrow. With English subtitles, this documentary interviews the last generation of people who were socialized and educated under the Soviet influence. Given that most of the interviewees are my age and younger, it is fascinating to see their point of view.

The Russian citizens remember their childhood conformity with fondness. While the interviewees reflect upon the fakery off the Soviet system, **My Perestroika** focuses upon personal responsibility and carving out an individual identity.
