Jerry Springer in Your Cinema
12 June 2004 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

This is a must see for all Americans! It follows the lives of two specific socio-economic classes in a documentary styled presentation of the "Upper Class" in parts of the East coast and the lives of the "Lower Class" in the mid west. If you are studying sociology, or are just somewhat curious about how the rich vs the poor in your country live, this will open your eyes.

This film deals specifically with how rich people see themselves, and how they see the poor in the US, at times you struggle to comprehend what is coming out of some of these peoples mouths, and struggle to understand what has society come too?

This is a brilliant piece of work, hopefully it can change at least a few mindsets out there.

8/10
