Summary
"With both humor and outrage, Michael Moore's Capitalism: a love story explores a taboo question: What is the price that America pays for its love of capitalism? Years ago, that love seemed so innocent. Today, however, the American dream is looking more like a nightmare as The Beast runs amok and families pay the price with their jobs, their homes and their savings. Moore takes us into the homes of ordinary people whose lives have been turned upside down; and he goes looking for explanations in Washington, DC and elsewhere. What he finds are the all-too-familiar symptoms of a love affair gone astray: lies, abuse, betrayal ... and 14,000 jobs being lost everyday. [The film] is both a culmination of Moore's previous works and a look into what a more hopeful future could look like. It is Michael Moore's ultimate quest to answer the question ... 'Who are we and why do we behave the way that we do?'"-- Atlantis Films web site
