Seeing How the Other Half Lives
25 September 2018 | by lifesoboringSee all my reviews

The film is realistic in its portrayal of the barrio of L.A. A feisty middle-aged divorced white woman has her car vandalized by some teenage Chicano boys, and she goes into their neighborhoods to track them down and demand payment for the damages (a total of $340 for a set of steel-belted radial tires). Is she going to be able to get the money? Watch the movie and find out.
