Vivid look at income inequality and ordinary people struggling to get by, in a society where only the rich make a decent living.

Connected with the mostly middle-class audience who identified with the heroine.

a social movie from the woman who made 400 movies of which this and a hand full of others atre all that exhilsts.

The romance here is quite average for a movie like this. The actors are average too, no one really stood out for me. Overall an okay movie, not bad but not good either.
