A sad reflection of the country we live in. Any prime minister or minister who makes ignorant comments about people not using their ‘common sense’ to get out of a burning building or thinks flooding in the North does not count, should be forced to watch this film.
It could be called, thought provoking but it’s the kinds of things we often do not like to think about; they are so unpleasant. The disabled or aged served by low paid zero employees who do what they can in the limited time allotted to them. When going extra mile for careers for their ‘clients’ means neglecting their own families. Latch key kids, ruthless bosses, truanting teenagers, overcrowded emergency departments. It could be said to be full of cliches. But situations that are common and real make those cliches. You can live in a bubble and think these things don’t exist and those like me are sheltered from the worse; yet 2 minutes from the station there is someone try to get warm swaddled in blankets.
It is not pleasant viewing. Not a feel good film. However possibly so important to watch.
