A very good, very heavy & emotional movie that will affect you. A great character study of the real struggles of the homeless
"I'm homeless. I'm nobody. I don't exist." George (Gere) is a homeless man struggling to survive in New York. Spending his days begging for food and money he is at the end of his rope. When he meets another man in the same position he finds a friend and someone that he can lean on for help. When he tries to reconnect with his daughter Maggie (Malone) everyone involved has to look at themselves and their past. This is a difficult movie to review. The movie itself is OK, very depressing but it keeps you watching even though nothing really happens. On the other hand I have never thought Richard Gere was that great of an actor, until this movie. This is a great character study of the real struggles a homeless person goes through. This is a very good movie, but not really one to watch for entertainment purposes. Overall, a very good, but very heavy and emotional movie that will affect you. I give this a B.
