What it's About (from Newsday): Over a six-month period in 2010, filmmaker Marc Levin follows four Long Island families as they cope with long-term unemployment. They are: Alan (corporate trainer) and Susan (retail) Fromm, of Plainview; Nick (finance, laid off after the Lehman Brothers collapse) and Regina (part-time legal secretary) Puccio, of Wantagh; Mel (finance) and Anne (public relations) Strauss of Smithtown; and David (chiropractor) and Heather (teacher) Hartstein, of Montauk. David Hartstein died in June 2011, after contracting hantavirus.

This looks thoroughly depressing, but I'm going to watch, since it focuses on four families who live within an hour or so from me.
