I went into this documentary thinking I would be angry at the situation these six brothers (and one sister) were put in by their parents, and indeed, their lives for a long time followed a path different than what I (and probably the majority of poeple) would choose for them. However, the boys themselves displayed such resiliency on camera that I left the theater hopeful that they would find their way in this world, despite probably lacking a lot of basic skills.* The film is worth watching just to see how striking they are when the venture out into New York City from their tiny, cramped apartment.
Where watched: Laurelhurst Theater with S. North.
*But really? The fact that children are allowed to be raised this way is disturbing. There should be more oversight.
