OUR HOUSE

(David Teague, Greg King, U. S.). 60 min­utes. Rat­ing: A hand­ful of ad­dicts, ex- cons and other home­less peo­ple find sta­bil­ity in an aban­doned Brook­lyn ware­house run by a group of Chris­tian squat­ters. But when the build­ing’s owner – also a Chris­tian – tells ev­ery­one they have to move out, their fu­tures hang in the bal­ance.

There’s some­thing slight and un­fo­cused about Our House, but the sto­ries are in­spi­ra­tional, and the di­rec­tors wisely fo­cus on Dan, an ad­dict es­tranged from his fam­ily and in and out of jail many times, who tries to main­tain his dig­nity and pride amidst so much up­heaval.
