(DVD / NR / 2018 / Lionsgate Films)
Overview: The mind-blowing documentary, 'Generation Wealth' comes to DVD on October 16th from Lionsgate.
Emmy-nominee director and photographer, Lauren Greenfield, gives you a look into the lives of America’s most wealthy. Beware, as not everyone who makes it to the top are as innocent as they appear to be!
DVD Verdict: Wow! Lauren Greenfield's new film about the "American Dream" of acquiring money, fame, status, and having more, more, more in life to satisfy the me, me, me attitude is brilliant, disturbing, shocking, but the most utterly entertaining and eye-opening. It will make you stop and exam your own life ... or at least it should!
In many ways this film explains - while barely mentioning him - how this country could elect corrupt narcissist as its President. It describes a country where beauty, sex, fame, and status have all become commodities on sale to the highest bidder Greenfield takes it a step further by intriguingly adding herself and her own family as part of the story and suggesting that her careerism is also part of the problem.
The photography is beautiful and provides a powerful narrative of the collapse of the aforementioned "American Dream." A lot of people (not only teenagers) are not aware of how powerful mass media marketing is nowadays. Not everyone has the same standards and aspirations in life ,yet, this documentary has voiced some thoughts and emotions a lot of us were having for quite a while now but were too scared to admit.
Highly recommended to all who care about the future of America, 'Generation Wealth' is an incredible insight into the world we live in and Greenfield herself should be highly commended for a work that is both personal and political. This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.78:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs and comes with the Special Feature of:
