  • The film bolsters its case with plenty of facts, charts and expert testimony - evidence typical of this sort of advocacy documentary. But what makes the movie compelling is its focus on a handful of victims, who make the statistics painfully real. show more

  • In addition to the dismaying facts and figures is a fuller sense of what hunger can look like, and feel like, among the millions of Americans classified as "food-insecure" — those who may not know, for themselves or their children, where the next meal will come from. show more

  • As important and eye-opening a documentary as you’ll see this year, A Place at the Table makes it impossible to think of hunger as merely another symptom of a shredded social safety net. show more

    Do you like great characters and great story-telling, along with beautiful cinematography and a gorgeous soundtrack? Then go see \"A Place at the Table.\" This is a riveting and important documentary that shows that we all pay a huge social cost by having so many underfed and undernourished citizens.

    Where is the documentary on MANDATORY BIRTH CONTROL or VOLUNTARY STERILIZATION? This would fix 90% of the countries issues.
