From The Booth

Emilio Estevez has written and directed a tale for our times where politicians enact heartless policies to assist their corporate cronies at the expense of society’s marginalized members. On a bitterly cold winter night in Cincinnati, a group of homeless people take refuge in the local library. When the police are called in, a standoff ensues and competing politicians use the turmoil of the situation for their own gains while the assortment of homeless people cling to their survival in the warmth of the library. Estevez elects for broad brushstrokes over the subtle and his fine cast, including Gabrielle Union, Christian Slater, Taylor Schilling, Jeffrey Wright, Jena Malone and Alec Baldwin make The Public a rousing cri de coeur.
