    The film is both funny and painful. Those with parent and grandparents warehoused in these facilities will find some portions hard to take, but the movies reality is what makes it worth watching.

    Really cute, won't win an Oscar, but it held my interest. It was a mix of sad, but also funny as real life is.

    Assisted Living has really received some positive golden reviews but at the crux of it is that "there is truth inside every joke." Overall, definitely heartfelt and authentic feel to the story. Would recommend.

    It's difficult at first to tell whether this is a documentary or a fictional work and this makes Assisted Living all the more involving.

    A curious film with real heart but questionable technique. This art house fodder is just quirky and fresh enough to catch on with audiences.
