Editorial Reviews

These are hard times in the Quad Cities, a great American crossroads along the border of Iowa and Illinois, where the Mississippi River intersects Interstate 80. It's home to John Deere manufacturing and the nation's breadbasket. But it's also an area deeply scarred by the Recession. FRONTLINE spent months following three young girls who are growing up against the backdrop of their families' struggles against financial ruin. The result is an intimate portrait of the economic crisis as it's rarely seen, through the eyes of children. At a time when one in five American kids lives below the poverty line, Poor Kids is an unflinching and revealing exploration of what poverty means to children, and to the country's future.

This documentary was exceptionally well made. They let the children take centre stage as they explain their hardships. One particular Kayleigh is very frank in her story, and has some wise words about reaching your personal goals and dreams. Words of which we can all draw inspiration from.

It's this genuine capture of these children's spirit facing their plight which sets it apart from other documentaries and makes it extremely memorable and thought provoking.

A real tear-jearker. Very enlightening. Very sad that we want to feed everyone else in the world and still let our own children wake up with nothing to eat......maybe the whole day!!!!

This is something that has affected my life in more ways than I can say here. I'd recommend this for anyone. Among many other things, it shows what happens when the economy is driven downward by poor decisions at the top. Not to mention poor decisions on the family level. Spurs one to do something about it in whatever ways one can.
