One of the most powerful scenes in the movie is when Maggie Fitzgerald (Hilary Swank) buys a small house for her mother and family. She meets surprising resistance. Her mother turns down her offer in order to maintain her eligibility for welfare. This is a powerful way of motivating a discussion of perverse incentives created by public assistance programs.Available on iTunes Available on Amazon.com
