The Poor of New York

directed by Alex Roe

A financial crash, a government shut-down, and a banker grows rich off another man's fortune, while that man's family sinks deeper and deeper into debt. Their lives are all intertwined with a young aristocrat, an immigrant family, and a whimsical, opportunistic thief, all struggling with newfound poverty. But in the melodramatic universe, deliverance comes from unexpected places. A genre-defining melodrama from one of the 19th century's masters with quite a lot to tell us today, of course.
