This film is a haunting look at life on the streets, capturing one man's struggle to find food and shelter in New York City with remarkable realism and compassion. Shuffled into the unforgiving bureaucracy of a men's shelter, George (Richard Gere, in an unforgettable performance) seems destined to wind up as just another lost soul swallowed up by the system -- until he meets a gregarious, down-and-out ex-jazzman (Broadway legend Ben Vereen) who inspires George to reconnect with his estranged daughter. Shot in an eloquently observational style, this critically acclaimed drama is a heartbreaking glimpse at a world that is all too easily overlooked.
