This documentary about Father Greg Boyle and his Homeboy Industries, directed by Academy Award winner, Frieda Mock, is opening in theaters next week.
Then it will shortly be available for purchase or download, but it’s one of those films that it’s satisfying to see in the theater, as a shared experience.
To be honest, if you live in this city, you should see this movie. If you’re a youth worker or a teacher, or a member of law enforcement, a prosecutor, a public defender, or a judge, you should definitely see this movie.
If you just plain want to feel more hopeful about the race to which we all claim membership, you should see this movie.
