  1. It never smirks or condescends as does, say, a Michael Moore; it never seems smug and superior, only committed and compassionate.
  2. Their ultimate success is a classic victory for the little guy.
  3. 70
    This film puts a pained human face on the cost of the corporate status quo.
  4. It's also genuinely moving to see disenfranchised individuals discovering self-determination from the hard ground up.
  5. 60
