Summary, etc.:
DOMESTIC VIOLENCE shows the Tampa, Florida, police responding to domestic violence calls and the work of The Spring, the principal shelter in Tampa for women and children. Sequences with the police include police response, intervention, and attempted resolution of domestic violence calls.. Sequences at the shelter include intake interviews, individual counseling sessions, anger management training, group therapy, staff meetings, conversations among clients and between clients and staff, and school activities, therapy and counseling for children at the shelter.. "DOMESTIC VIOLENCE examines the ambiguous nature of human bonds, the nightmare versions of romance and family love. Virtually all the people we see, male and female, insist that they love the ones they torment." ́ David Denby, The New Yorker. "DOMESTIC VIOLENCE is ultimately the most compassionate of all the Wiseman films. We come out of it feeling that change is possible, even as the film circles back to where it started." ́ Elvis Mitchell, The New York Times
