Excellent and heart warming portrait of three health care providers in Health care providers in Northern New Mexico. These wonderful people do what they can to help those struggling with various forms of addiction. They are the sort of professionals that we'd all love to have taking care of us since they show a real compassion for the people in their care.
This film is a genuine gem. It is highly recommended and is one of the highlights of this year's DOC NYC
Smartest Kids In The World
Portrait of four kids who left the United States to go study abroad because they flt the systems in other countries (South Korea, Netherlands, Switzerland and Finland) A good film that is a guaranteed discussion starter. As good as the the ideas are and as charming as the kids are the presentation is a little too by the numbers for me with the result that we kind of get the sense that we've been here before when we really haven't.
Family in Transition
What happens when a family in Israel has to deal with the father's announcement that he wants to transition into becoming a woman? This is an heartfelt and kind of intense look at the changing dynamics of a family. Wonderfully in the trenches we are there are the family goes through the seismic changes and everyone is forced to consider where they stand. Recommended
(Family in Transition will open Friday November 16th in New York and Los Angeles November 23)
