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

Although Americans don't like to admit it, the United States has a tacit socioeconomic class system. This documentary does an excellent job of profiling different groups of this class system, from the very poor to the very rich. I found it very interesting that almost all Americans see themselves as part of the middle class.

During the movie, it is hard not to see which of these classes you identify with. I do think, though, with hard work, some intelligence, health, a good attitude, and college loans, even the poorest of the poor can make a success out of his or her life!

This is an excellent way to spend a couple of hours. The reality brought up in the documentary was all I could think about during the few days after watching it.
