Time Out says

2 out of 5 stars

After TV news producer Joseph F. Lovett started to notice significant eyesight loss, he turned the camera on himself and other visually impaired people to learn how they cope with being treated as if they were social pariahs. Lovett spends most of this documentary talking about how he wants to inform the public about vision loss, yet the majority of the film's footage reveals him to be simply agog at his subjects' struggles, and amazed at the very idea that these people could soldier on with their lives. The disparity between the director's earnest intent to educate and his wow-who'da-thunk? result is anything but inspiring.
