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.

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.
