Home Street Home

Home Street Home

Home Street Home is the story of Dean Cummings, a homeless man who has been living in a box disguised as a dumpster for little over a year. Kitty-corner to the Chanel boutique at Spring and Wooster streets in Soho sits a vacant lot surrounded by a tall chain-link fence. Locked to the outside of the fence is what appears to be a black wooden Dumpster, tagged by a graffiti artist. It's the kind of thing you see all over the city and think nothing of. But this wooden bin doesn't hide trash cans - it houses Dean. In 2016 2 male models Shane Duffy and Phil; Sullivan went homeless to raise awareness. What they didn't expect was to find a friend. A week later the two tracked down Cummings and told him the truth: They weren't actually homeless. And they wanted to help. Duffy built the box at his contracting-business partner's New Hyde Park, LI, shop for $1,500, splashing out on pressure-treated wood meant to withstand New York City's winters. Then in 2017 NYPD carted away Dean's home and life. In return they issued a summons and a court date. Only time will tell exactly what will transpire and the bottom of this story is only yet being scratched.

Most compact, most mature and best done in very aspects, and perhaps it's the best movie from Robin Rose Singer.

I want to point out that the movie might have been long but I enjoyed every second of the movie and it was not a drag at all. There is no other way that would have made a perfect movie like this better.

This movie blew me away; however not the first time I saw it, I had to watch it twice to truly appreciate the message and the power of this film. Maybe I wasn't fully paying attention or maybe I was too young at the time but I am so glad that I watched it again.
