MILK cover image
What a beautiful film that addresses a not uncommon issue with our elderly - food insecurity. For elders in our communities with limited income, this has become something that everyone should be aware of.

Milk features a young girl (Charlotte Jaspers) counting her change so she can buy herself a treat at the coffee shop nearby. But when she sees an old man (Frank Edwards) who doesn't have enough money to buy himself milk, she steps in and out of kindness.

The film is beautifully created with outstanding camerawork, beautiful locations and tremendous acting and terrific direction. The little girl's behavior is so charmingly real. You can almost hear her think, thanks to Celia Jasper's direction. The old man is also well played and the shopkeeper (Christy-Anne Sullivan) makes an impactful statement at the end, when she accepts the girls' change without counting it, as enough.

Food insecurity because of lack of money and other resources is such a sad statement of our times, when it really shouldn't exist. I highly recommend this film for ages 8 to 18, plus adults. It would play well at a film festival or special screening and is a conduit for a greater conversation on the topic of food insecurity. Reviewed by Julie S., KIDS FIRST!
