Movie Review: A Place at the Table
A Place at the Table
3 out of 5 Stars
Directors • Kristi Jacobson, Lori Silverbush
Rated • PG
Recommended to • Those interested in (or completely unaware of) the starvation epidemic that continues to plague America despite an overabundance of available food.
“A Place at the Table” is a well-constructed documentary the features a handful of profiles of families that are struggling to feed themselves and those who are trying to help them put food on the table. The film also examines the politics behind starvation and how an antiquated welfare system is in desperate need of a retrofit. It doesn’t have a lot of answers, but it is a nice introduction to a conversation that needs to continue.
