Realistic take on most American families - not MTV fantasyland
This movie gives the viewer a realistic and true sense of what most American families go through in their lives - not the fantasy world most people think exists in the TV UN-reality world of Hogans and Kardashians.
The director puts it out on the line and gave what is an in-your-face account of middle America and the America that people do not want to acknowledge. Families for the most part are not perfect, especially in areas of economic downturn. If a documentary were to made on the effects to families caused by this current downturn, then go no further, this movie nails it on the head. If you can handle the truth, see the movie. Thanks for showing America the real deal.
I had read somewhere that this is the director's directorial debut. I would like see his next endeavor - a realistic romantic comedy/drama perhaps. Maybe even write the script, himself.
