Barely employed Manhattanite Joe (David Krumholtz) agrees to a green-card marriage to Frenchwoman Annabelle (Clara Bellar). The newlyweds struggle to find an apartment on his meager salary, and settle on a unit in a shabby tenement building on a block where Joe's deceased grandparents once lived.

    Sort of a poor man's "Rent" - minus the music and the AIDS - and much blander than the title would have you expect. show more

    As an overwrought, overacted drama, Kill the Poor is negligible. show more
