Matthew_Lucas's rating of the film October Country

A searing documentary about America's forgotten. Following the lives of one lower class family struggling to make it through their daily lives for one year, the doc presents a complicated portrait of modern life and explores the rarely seen underbelly (and reality) of the American dream. Few of its subjects are likable, but it's hard to ignore this kind of raw honesty.
