Harry Rossi's rating of the film Streetwise

Incredibly powerful, incredibly moving, and incredibly well made all together. This is one of the best documentaries I've ever seen, hands down. Their lives are sad, but you really get a sense of survival and hope with the these kids. The scene between the son and his father in jail is some of the best cinema I've ever seen. Just beautiful. Very sad, but also very beautiful, touching and most importantly: human.
