This is not your average Hollywood movie. Some home truths from the working class.

A sad story that is packed with a lot of social issues: unemployment, housing, competition, working conditions, teeneage problems, home care. Well acted and dense.

A must see. A very real and personal movie, a family’s journey exposing the trials and pitfalls of our gig economy. You will never look at an uber driver, delivery person or a caregiver in the same way. Many reviewers have complained it is depressing. Unfortunately reality often is. This in an important movie to watch and build some much needed empathy and understanding in this world.

This movie was really depressing, I’d like to give it half a star but that would be very generous of me.

A depressing movie about a miserable working-poor family sinking inevitably into homelessness. Did I mention son failing school and preteen daughter trying to hold family together and wife whose job gets unmanageable while she sacrifices to her husbands dreams? Didn't movies used to be about entertainment rather than wallowing in depression?
