Generation Wealth Rated 18

Generation Wealth

Dir. Lauren Greenfield. USA, 2018. 1h 46m. Starring Lauren Greenfield, Bret Easton Ellis, Sheldon Greenfield, Patricia Greenfield, G-Mo, Florian Homm, Chris Hedges, Limo Bob.

A provocative documentary about the corrupted American Dream, chronicling the human costs of late-stage capitalism, materialism, narcissism, and greed. Award-winning director Lauren Greenfield (Queen of Versailles) captures a portrait of a materialistic, image-obsessed culture.

'By examining her own attitudes towards wealth, work and success, and digging into her relationships with her family, her dissection of the American dream ends up being more personal than a simplistic critique of capitalism.' ★★★★ Simran Hans, The Observer

‘Greenfield makes a compelling argument for a society on the brink of precipitous decline, choosing to interpret the runaway vanity and rampant materialism observed in her own work as harbingers of our imminent destruction.’ Peter Debruge, Variety
