On Netflix- a foster care angle: Chris Rock & Mrs. Chatterjee vs. Norway

After a productive May National Foster Care Month we thought we would share two recent shows on Netflix to appreciate some of the perspectives of the general public on the foster care system. In case you missed them, both are worth a watch. Some summer fun and maybe something to think about.

Chris Rock : “Selective Outrage”

“Selective Outrage” is the Netflix show that Chris Rock had after being famously slapped by Will Smith at last year’s Oscars. Chris mentions “social worker” in this clip and in a way forces us to think of our own biases and prejudices.

Here is a clip:

Mrs. Chatterjee vs. Norway

This is an Indian movie with English subtitles and traces the challenges of Mrs. Chatterjee in Norway with the foster care system in that country. Her children are removed primarily based on misunderstanding her culture.

Here is a clip.

We hope our readers will enjoy these shows!
