Last Year at the Crossing ★★★

Filmmaker Kathy Bruner has a keen eye for finding the narrative in her subject. The documentary elicits sympathy for the troubled youths by letting them tell us about their struggles and showing us what they are going through. At its heart, this is a hopeful documentary that doesn't judge its subjects. At the same time, it doesn't give them a free pass and doesn't shy away from showing them stumble.
