October Country is a beautifully filmed portrait of an American family struggling for stability while haunted by the ghosts of war, teen pregnancy, foster care and child abuse. With rarely seen intimacy, sensitivity and respect, this vibrant documentary examines the forces that unsettle the working poor and the violence that lurks beneath the surface of American life.
"A powerful portrait of the American working poor and the dynamics that govern all families, regardless of economic class." - Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
