A thought provoking look at homelessness
1 August 1999 | by (Cambridge, Mass) – See all my reviews

Jupiter's Wife is a documentary that caters to your sense of thought and inquisitiveness about the way the homeless live. Why are they homeless? Who are they? The film maker uses the life of one person in Central Park NYC, Maggie Cogan, to illuminate us. Michael Negroponte shows us a life that has made unexpected turns and in the end reveals much more than what we originally thought, a complex story that untangles itself as Michael deciphers Maggie's mythological life explanations. He also flashes images of his own family life which help us make a transition from our normal existence to that of Maggie's. In the end I was left with a sense of understanding and profound melancholy over Maggie's plight.
