    When Anderson allows the experts - or simply those most deeply impacted by the changes - to speak, the film has a powerful urgency.

    My Brooklyn, Kelly Anderson's sensitive study of gentrification in her home borough, is as much personal essay as urban-policy survey.

    Filled with colorful, articulate neighborhood champions, this absorbing picture eschews militant outrage for a quietly devastating look at social commodification.
