    Bitter Sweet Truth

    Watching this film broke my heart. I know these people, and find myself hoping that they will somehow find a way out. But as the movie progresses they all just seem to find deeper ways in. They are not saints, but they aren't monsters either. They are lost souls and for me they each are painfully human and achingly flawed.

    Excellent Directing By Billy Wirth

    Though some may find this insightful, factual story disturbing, it had to be told. Director, Billy Wirth's exceptional revelation of the many struggles homeless people face is admirable. His moving commentary exhibits his humanitarian efforts and clearly shows that with guidance despair can reverse to success. MacArthur Park should be seen by everyone and perhaps there will be more like Billy Wirth who can help bring an end to the homeless problems.
