Canada's future if we don't change direction.
22 August 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I've watched this movie several times since 2003. I've recommended it to several parents who have children involved with drug abuse and it's helped to give a reality check to people who think that drug usage is a joke. In the GTA of Ontario, I see a lot of drug usage. The entertainment industry and even some cultures seem to glorify such use and lead people down the wrong path, a path that's very difficult to get out of no matter how much you want out.

On The Corner touches on these issues and is portrayed in a raw, honest and pure way. I've also spoken to people who work at homeless shelters and drug outreach programs who say that they see the things portrayed in this movie everyday.

I highly recommend this movie!
