Lost on Long Island

DVD - 2012
Rate this:
The Great Recession "officially" ended in the summer of 2009, but for 25 million unemployed and underemployed Americans the fallout continues. Located on Long Island, the birthplace of the post-war suburban American Dream, Hard Times follows the story of four families who are dealing with long-term unemployment-white-collar workers who had moved up in the world, only to see their dreams dissolve as they now search in vain for a new job. Their humanity and dignity endures, even as their plight and pain are all too often invisible to the political and medical mainstream.
