That their cast of non-professionals and unknowns represents immigrants, minorities and the disabled in such a unifying and uplifting work is all the more reason to embrace an independent film that just might restore your faith in humanity.

As sharp as it is blunt, Give Me Liberty is a bravura piece of filmmaking. Although it's not always successful, it delivers a swift kick to an industry that has sidelined characters like these for far too long.

"Give Me Liberty" is a full-blown farce on wheels, a master class in controlled, escalating chaos.
