Bound to Rise
Bound to Rise is a comedy with a happy ending, based on four of Horatio Alger's 'strive and succeed' novels, in which the young protagonists succeed against the odds in the New York City of the 1890s. But this was also the time of the robber barons, when thousands of children lived on the streets while the wealthy attended "poverty socials" dressed in rags and drank champagne out of beer buckets. A time of striking contrast between opulent mansions and the overcrowded tenements where three quarters of the city's people lived. So this portrait of the city a century and a quarter ago is even more relevant today in the era of the "one percent" and billionaire banksters.
