“Two new documentaries look at the difficulties that many first-generation and poor young people face as they attempt to get a college degree. “Personal Statement,” tells the stories of three remarkable Brooklyn high school seniors who have to find their own way through the college application process and the struggles they face in school and at home. Another documentary film, “Unlikely ” shows us five nontraditional students in Akron, Ohio; Atlanta; Boston; and Los Angeles as they fight to win a second chance at a college degree.”
