Ken Tucker, Entertainment Weekly

Bikel has produced another moving, chilling, and essential documentary.

Sam Allis, The Boston Globe

... these people pierce you with their candor, and it is this candor that elevates the program to solid viewing.

Roger Catlin, Hartford Courant

... just as eye-opening as [FRONTLINE's] reports from Washington.

Ellen Gray, Philadelphia Daily News

... an unusually personal report on the economy.

Cynthia Fuchs, PopMatters.com

Close to Home exposes the exhaustion of worrying, in particular, the social and emotional effects on people who "have never had to look for a job."

Kevin McDonough, United Features Syndicate

... hardly an upbeat way to spend an hour, but it puts some real human faces on the biggest news story of our time.
