Terrific Exploration of the Concept of Responsibility
7 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

The consistent response among all these boys and young men was the sense of responsibility attached to this first job of theirs. It also gives them their first opportunity to make their own money and serve their neighborhood. Both my brothers had paper routes and a newspaper stand on a busy street in Seattle. Those were leans times -- during the Depression -- where every penny counted. Both of my brothers worked and paid their way through college. Both of them were responsible citizens and family men. Paper routes contribute to character building and learning early how to earn and manage money. It's also good exercise. I enjoyed this short documentary very much. It was well done and the young men seemed comfortable having the film crew interview them. A nice slice of life in contrast to a lot of negativity in the news and film.
