Thoughtful and Insightful topic
4 August 2009 | by (Pasadena, California) – See all my reviews

It is rare to come across a topic in film (especially in documentaries) that hasn't been done to death. I was inspired by the real emotion of the six spotlighted members of the LA LGBT community that only wished for a better place to live. Nothing more. The politics, the 'lottery', and the heart-wrenching moments told on camera are what film-making is all about. Hats off to Carolyn Coal who brought this seldom-heard topic to light. What amazed me beyond the well-shot, emotional story, is that most of the selected subjects in the film did eventually get selected for a home in Triangle Square. Seemed prophetic to me. I can only hope that more and more venues like Triangle Square are in the 'works' for more well-deserving people out there.
