Moving Movies

Pop cornsThese are some fantastic movies I have watched that revolve around the realm of Social workers, mental health, and sex trafficking. Inspiring, moving and well captured. If you haven’t seen them, they’re a must…

  1. Girl, Interrupted

A fantastic movie about a young girl who goes to a mental health hospital to seek treatment for her well being. While there she meets two therapists who help change her patterns.

  1. Oranges and Sunshine

Based on a true story of social worker, Margaret Humphreys who discovers that poor children are being taken from their home, then moved to Australia and Canada from England and forced into intensive labour.

  1. It’s Kind of a Funny Story

Definitely one of my favorite movies. A young boy enters a mental health hospital where he meets and befriends a group of misfit patients, falls in love, and works on a journey of healing.

  1. Requiem for a Dream

Initially a novel by Hubert Selby Jr, the movies explores the world of heroin and the desperation the characters take to get their drug of choice. Graphic and detailed, the story does not end on a happy note for anyone.

  1. Born into Brothels

Briski, A photographer goes to Kolkata where she befriends children and begins to teach them photography. Their photos display the life they live in the red light district. Briski attempts to place the children into boarding school to better their lives, but she faces many barriers along the way.
