The Great Depression
10 April 2017 | by SnowgoSee all my reviews

While I think this is a good story and had some good acting (Danny Aiello), there wasn't a happy moment in the movie. It was all depressing. When the kid they were traveling with got caught (and charged with kidnapping?) and then the homeless people that helped the kids got beaten up by FBI or investigators, that was enough for me. I don't know why the screenwriter insisted on writing a movie where no one was ever happy.., not even for a moment. By the way, having a kids' parents burned like that is not the way to start a movie. This should have been a movie about liberation and possibilities. The tone was more like terror and violence, though. The fact that I still gave it six stars shows that it had something. It could have been great.
