Movie Info

Oscar-winning filmmakers Deborah Oppenheimer and Mark Jonathan Harris reunite for a revealing first-hand look at the foster care system as seen through the eyes of those who know it best. With extraordinary access to the inner workings of the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS), Oppenheimer and Harris go beyond the sensational headlines and stereotypes.

  • [A]n intimate, intensely dramatic film that holds us in its grip like a page-turning novel. Except it's all true.

    May 3, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Over the course of two hours, Harris presents a wide-ranging and clear-eyed look at the potential and limits of the current foster care system.

    May 9, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Foster needs a little more balance, but it's a good treatise on how people can come out the other side of the overwhelmed foster system and do well.

    May 8, 2019 | Full Review…
  • It's about time for a quality drama that explores the foster care system from all angles and perhaps in so doing encourages more adults with a stable home life to consider fostering.
