Capitalism: A Love Story

Michael Moore’s Capitalism: A love story brings home the theme that has been examining throughout his career: the disastrous impact of corporate dominance in the daily lives of Americans (and by default the rest of the world) .

But this time the culprit is much bigger than General Motors, and the scene much larger than Flint, Michigan. Central America, the halls of power in Washington, the world’s financial epicenter in Manhattan, Michael Moore once again have more viewers in uncharted territory. With humor and outrage, the capitalism of Michael Moore: A Love Story explores a taboo question: What is the price paid by the United States for their love of capitalism? Years ago, the love seemed so innocent.

Today, however, the American dream is more like a nightmare, and families to pay the price with their jobs, their homes and savings. Moore takes us into the homes of ordinary people whose lives have been upside down, and goes looking for explanations in Washington, DC and elsewhere.

What are the symptoms is all-too-familiar of a love lost: lies, betrayal, abuse, … and 14,000 jobs are lost every day. Capitalism: A love story is both the culmination of Moore’s previous works and a look at what a more hopeful future could look like. It is the ultimate quest of Michael Moore, to answer the question posed over his illustrious film career: Who we are and why we behave the way we do?
