$$$= happiness.....
1 April 2003 | by See all my reviews

Powerful and compelling drama which has not become 'dated' upon the affects of homelessness shown through the tribulations of a family experiencing such a plight. Outstanding performances from all the main actors including the children. Anyone who doubts that society must provide decent and acceptable housing for its' citizens (regardless of means) ought to view this picture to understand the importance of having proper accomodation for all, otherwise the social cost including crime will soar. A further significant "message" coming out of this film was and is an attempt to show the 'reality' of poverty; whoever said that money cannot buy happiness needs to see this picture. Of course no matter how good a movie it is impossible to fully portray the true extent of misery caused by poverty, but at least this one makes a serious attempt to do so. And congratulations to the film makers for a suitably realistic and honourable ending,rather than a Hollywood style 'happy ever after'. A sound 8 out of 10.
