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.

This is the best looking version of the theatrical release. You also get the standard blu-ray with 3 different versions of the film. You can’t go wrong with this package in my opinion.
