The article presents information on the motion picture "Assisted Living," by Elliot Greenebaum, which is a low-budget movie that is rich in character and setting. The director's first feature-length film has made quite a splash already, winning the Grand Jury Prize at the 2003 Slamdance and Savannah film festivals, and Best Feature Award at the Woodstock Film Festival. It was scheduled to hit theaters February 4, 2005, initially in New York; New Haven, Connecticut; and Washington D.C. The young filmmaker set his film in an assisted-living facility in Kentucky. The film tells a simple story of two human beings a staffer and a resident and the connection they make with one another. It does so against the compelling and sometimes disturbing backdrop of a facility where dementia and physical disabilities connected with advanced age are omnipresent. This setting blurs the line between a drama and a documentary.
