A Very Solid Documentary
20 October 2007 | by See all my reviews

Caught this one on the Sundance channel and was completely moved by the main character's journey.

We follow a single mother trying her best to provide for her family as she goes down the road of the American Dream: home ownership.

As Sharice gets closer to a piece of the pie, things get more complex and she's forced to make some tough decisions for her and her family. The ending is quite amazing and offers great insight into the trappings of inner city America.

This movie makes documentary film-making look easy. It's well constructed, has compelling characters, and tells a great story.

Very nice work.
