Audience Reviews for Nuyorican Dream
A raw display of poverty, and how it's feeling of helplessness destroy it's youths' ambitions. It sets 3 of 4 of Jr's siblings on paths of self-destruction through typical concrete jungle trappings, those of drugs and the personal & public crimes the need for them fosters.
The film captures this family's fractured whole with silent truths.
While this documentary is difficult to watch because it's very sobering, it's also something that's important to see. Far too many people in this country take what they have for granted, and this film was a definite eye-opener for me.
