The Homeless of the Hotels
23 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

6.25 of 10. A film that needs to be watched in its entirety to truly appreciate. A complex story set in the South, Florida in particular, with the type of people once viewed as trailer trash rednecks.

It starts out as a handicap man's fantasy, then starts to shift, with hints along the way that things aren't as nice as they look. It's not the happy world of Coke and donuts for breakfast and dinner, the peanut butter might not be fresh, and the adopted parents may not be in it for the sake of loving children.

It's things like the product placement in the film that require the complete story of the film to be put in proper perspective. The film would have benefited from a bit more context, but is definitely worth seeing.
