"Working Man" could not be more relevant to these pandemic times in which we live. A powerfully personal tale of an ordinary man who feels he is totally defined by the job he no longer has after a lifetime of punching a clock. Peter Gerety offers a gritty and emotionally riveting performance as does Talia Shire who plays his supportive and wise wife who challenges him re-discover his identity apart from his work. More than the story of a factory closing, so poignant in these times, the film explores much larger themes of personal fortitude, perseverance, pride in oneself and most especially loyalty and empowering those around us while not allowing our circumstances to overwhelm or define us. "Working Man" is about the triumph of the human spirit during the darkest moments and a tale of personal redemption reminding us that it is never too late in life to make a difference or change the course of one's life. This really is a poignant and meaninful and timeless film with important life lessons for our time.
