Children of Invention DVD

From the New York Times review: “Restraint proves a virtue of — and a shrewd if necessary choice for — Children of Invention, a modestly scaled, quietly effective independent movie about a struggling single mother and her two children. Directed and written by Tze Chun, making a fine feature debut, the movie offers both a familiar tale of immigrant striving and a topical look at what it means to be working and poor in America while hanging onto a badly frayed thread. Yet while the politics are there, you might be too busy choking back tears to notice.”

Now available on DVD, Children of Invention ($22.49) was an official selection for the 2009 Sundance Film Festival. The movie is available on Netflix as well.
