Storyline

"Assisted Living" chronicles a day in the life of Todd, a janitor who spends his days smoking pot and interacting with the residents for his own entertainment. Todd's detachment from his surroundings is compromised only by his unlikely friendship with Mrs. Pearlman, a resident who begins to confuse him with her son. On this particular day, Todd must choose whether or not to play the part. "Assisted Living" is shot and staged in a real nursing home and gains much of its unique effect and style from the participation of actual residents and staff members. During much of the film, it is impossible to distinguish between what is real and what is fiction. Written by Lars Ericson

Why You Never What to Finish Out Your Days in a Nursing Home!
9 October 2005 | by (Sacramento, California) – See all my reviews

This movie could be so close to the true that it's scare. The characters are amazingly realistic. The people in nursing homes are so forgotten that their environment become a separate existence, a world apart from reality. Some people may feel that some of the treatment of the patients are cruel, but you have to weigh that against the loneliness of having no one notice you for days. Give this film a try. Then talk to your kids about how your never want to be in a nursing home, under any circumstances. Because of the use of pot, this film is not appropriate for younger people. Remember that the care takers get minimum wage and would be better of working at McDonalds or Burger King.
