Storyline

Los Angeles' Skid Row is home to one of the largest homeless populations in the United States. And we found, inside that community, the remarkable and enormously moving stories of Olympic athletes, Harvard attorneys, accomplished musicians, scholars. We found poverty, drugs and mental illness, of course - but more importantly we found life, hope and incredibly powerful human journeys. Written by David Langness

A moving experience
23 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is a touching and candid portrayal of life on the streets of Los Angeles' Skid Row. I was truly enlightened by the compelling spirit of love and community in this troubled pocket of Los Angeles. Who knew? I just want to hug all the characters in this film. And they are true characters - all with their own unique and diverse stories, but their paths all led them to LA's Skid Row. Lost Angels is an eye opening, mind opening and heart opening film filled with life, laughter and insight into the humanity that lives in the heart of LA. I will never look at another homeless or "on the skids" person the same as I have in the past. I understand now that they have their obstacles and demons, but don't we all? l have so much respect for the dignity these people have even in the worst of times. DirectorThomas Napper does an exceptional job crafting this message of hope.
