As important and eye-opening a documentary as you'll see this year, "A Place at the Table" makes it impossible to think of hunger as merely another symptom of a shredded social safety net.

A tighter focus, or even just a voiceover narration, might have helped.

Directors Kristi Jacobson and Lori Silverbush won't blow you away with their filmmaking, but by focusing on people grappling with hunger right now, they make their message stick.

Directors Kristi Jacobson and Lori Silverbush cover a lot of ground in their heartbreaking documentary examining the hunger experienced by nearly 50 million Americans, but at less than 90 minutes, it feels a bit overstuffed.

As an info dump, Table is admirably efficient, addressing everything from obesity to the limits of charity. As a film, it's less compelling ...

Does a good job relaying the facts and why it's become so difficult to overcome the problems but also an incredibly emotional film.

More difficult to convey are the web of moral and political issues that surround the hunger crisis, and A Place at the Table proves its worth most by how it treats this wider set of problems.

Not much knew if you've been following the news on a regular basis, but the doc punctuates the serious problem, finding hunger in the midst of plenty.
