What’s It About?
Documentary that introduces us to an emerging movement of people who are committed to living more fully by having less physical possessions.
Short Review: 100 Words or Less (no spoilers)
The topic of this documentary is actually pretty interesting: people who have decided to reject compulsory consumption by shedding their excess physical belongings and living fuller lives while having less possessions. Some of these folks have dramatically improved their lives and their happiness by downsizing, living with less, and actively rejecting society’s mantra that money can buy happiness. However, even though the topic of this film is intriguing, the documentary itself is underwhelming. The interviews seem repetitive and also a little boring. Everyone interviewed is happy and nice, but they all basically just say the same thing.
Final Grade: C
