Film and Children Review..My Opinion


There has been a lot I have wanted to write about but I haven’t had/made time.  My husband and I both have really bad colds, plus, we went to Cedar Sinai yesterday for my annual doctor visit.  But, today,  I am going to discuss a film we saw this wknd.

If you’ve read any of my previous posts; you know I help the homeless in my  own way.  So, you know I am interested in helping the homeless, feeding the hungry, etc.  You also know I don’t have children.

There is a film out titled: A Place At The Table which is supposed to focus on the needs of society and the facts about being food poor and obesity.  While interesting and I did learn a few facts, they totally aimed it toward Child Hunger.  They also dared to say the religious organizations, food banks, etc. don’t help much and made it mainly a government issue.  I don’t agree with this because I think the government is getting to involved in everyone’s lives anyway.  But, that’s my opinion.  Anyay, back to the film.  the women interviewed were mothers…mostly single.  I don’t recall more than one person being interviewed and hungry (food poor) that was single or just child-less and food poor being interviewed.  They skipped quickly through the diabetes issue and focused quite a bit on the food stamp issue, being sure to point something interesting about Obama and his growing up.  I won’t tell you, in case you want to see the film.

Needless to say, upon leaving the film, my husband was almost convinced of my hating children because I was not impressed with the film.  I was not impressed because I did not got to see a film on Childhood Hunger in America.  I went to see a film about everybody that is hungry.  I did not wish to hear so much about the school lunch program.  What about more of the other, average  americans like the college students, or the ones who are simply losing their jobs and apartments, or the people who are getting sick with medical problems (not just diabetes or obesity) and cannot afford food.  There could have been more interviews with those people.

I look at the bigger picture.  I am sorry but to me, it is not All About The Children.

Do you realise a lot of these children that everyone keeps going on and on about are the same children that wind up killing or playing some sort of revenge on the adults in their lives?  Shooting their parents, getting emancipated from them, reporting them (the parents) for child abuse.  They know their rights now (because they have to many) and they use it against the adults.
