Two women reach out to each other from opposite sides of the socioeconomic divide in Jeffrey M. Togman's marvelously revealing documentary about the psychology of poverty.
[Home] reveals the fragility of hope in survivalist mentalities pre-programmed to expect the worst.
Uneven but generally effective drama has his teenage protag at a crossroads between street life and the straight-and-narrow.
Warmhearted but never sentimental or condescending, Home finally proves most affecting as an unsparing glimpse into the psychology of poverty.
First-time filmmaker Jeffrey M. Togman's documentary examines a complex issue -- the apparent intractability of poverty -- through the revealingly narrow perspective of one woman's efforts to improve her family's lot through homeownership.
Jeffrey Togman earns high marks here for his directorial debut, a socially-significant documentary which discusses an array of taboos concerning color, class and the ever-elusive American Dream.
With minimal hysteria, the film illuminates both the emotional deprivation ghetto life can perpetuate and the legit forces of good out to ease that pain.
