The Public (out Aug 1) is the story of a group of homeless people who barricade themselves inside a public library to avoid freezing temperatures outside. Writer-director Emilio Estevez has taken a risk in including so many subplots but to his credit, he’s found a way to weave it all together and create a tense, compelling narrative. Lots to think about here. Grade: B+.
