'Sunlight Jr.' Review

It's not a huge exaggeration to say that Sunlight Jr. was as difficult for me to watch in some ways as 12 Years a Slave. A frank depiction of poverty, this drama is very unromantic about life amidst the lower class. While watching Sunlight Jr., which stars Naomi Watts and Matt Dillon as a couple scraping to get by, you're constantly reminded how everything in life costs money, and how every decision the characters make is shaped by that cruel fact. I reviewed the film for Paste.
