Sensitive film about the underworld of the homeless people.
18 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Excellent film exploring the homeless people of one small town. Thousands of people were sent to the streets during the Reagan administration and largely ignored by the public. Homelessness should not be an issue in the United States, but it exists in almost every major city in every state.

The film makers did a great job of involving the viewer in the human side of the homeless by using interview techniques and bringing out the stories behind the homeless. They continued to engage the viewer by showing some hope for the homeless in social groups that give the homeless a future and place to be safe and get their lives back on track. Theme of the documentary would make for a great public broadcasting program and may heighten the public's awareness of the homeless issue within their own community.
