It will make you think twice about Republican America
25 June 2012 | by See all my reviews

One of the characters in this film says that private equity companies like Brynwood are turning "the American dream into the American nightmare." This film provides viewers with a visceral sense of this process. It is better than any economics class in explaining the role of unions in the American economy .. and better than any lecturer in explaining why the middle class is disappearing. You see the lower middle class lifestyle that decent wages provide, the apartments in which the workers at Stella Doro live, the relatives whose education they paid for ... and you are left to imagine what happened to these people when all was said and done. If this story doesn't make you think twice about Republican America, you don't have a brain (and forget about a heart).
