HBO’s Our Towns Documentary Examines American Struggle and Spirit

The Erie Reader’s contributing editor, Ben Speggen, reviewed ‘Our Towns,’ writing, “the documentary, filmed before the pandemic, acknowledges the looming, global crisis of the day without letting it strangle the stories.”

He concludes, “the ‘hey, we should try that in our town!’ is the story that America remains in the hands of Americans, an ever-evolving, ever-growing group of people with many, like those showcased here, working on its faults and celebrating its splendor.”
