Synopsis:
Angie may not have much formal education, but she's got energy, wit and ambition, and she's in her prime. Not for the first time she's out of a job. She has a point to prove. Angie and her flatmate Rose decide they can be their own boss. They set up a recruitment agency for immigrant workers, which operates in a twilight world where labour is cheap and laws are made to be ignored.Maybe they represent these times: the chance to make as much money as possible, regardless of the consequences, is tempting. But at what cost?

It’s a real world!! - It's a Free World review by TB

Spoiler Alert
07/01/2018

A film that portraits the world of immigration and their employment in a society that at times uses them for their own gain. The initial heartfelt actions and determination of the main character and the storyline are quickly overtaken by risk, greed, selfishness and the exploitation of those on the brink of desperation. Don’t think for one minute that this isn’t happening in the real world, right under our noses and this film highlights this without being spectacular but good enough to watch. Would have given 2.5 out of 5 if possible.
