Have you seen the movie "America?" This is a movie produced and starring Rosie O'Donnell. It's about the foster care system - how it rescues impoverished kids who are wasting away, places them in foster homes where they are further abused and then sent to a government system that has more failure than successes.
Rosie discovered the young male star Philip Johnson in a restaurant and thought the rookie actor fit the image of the character in the film. He's a great choice. Rosie plays a psychiatrist and America is the problem kid. His name is America because his ethnic background is a mix of everything in America. In the beginning, America won't speak to his social worker, let alone share his inner secrets but throughout the film Rosie (the psychiatrist) works with him, gains his trust and he finally shares his torment. The last 10 minutes are worth it.
Warning - this is not a Christian film. And although it's rated PG, there's a lot of junk and it should probably be rated at least 14A. Because I have a friend in foster care I know a bit about the nonsense and mistrust that goes on in foster situations and I felt I had to see this movie.
Bottom line - If you want to be safe and live in a Christian bubble with bunnies and rainbows then don't watch this movie. This movie would never be "pastor approved". But if you dare to be informed, watch, and discover the sad truth that even in your safe city, on your street, the government system is not doing the job you might think it is set up to do.
I truly feel that a movie with a good moral ending where good overcomes evil is not justification for sitting thru two hours of off-screen sexual abuse, lies and profanity. This is an exception. This is real life and Rosie puts her heart and money into the film to show us the truth that we cannot see.
