Capitalism: A Love Story comes home to the issue Michael Moore ( Director) has been examining throughout his career: the disastrous impact of corporate dominance on the everyday lives of Americans (and by default, the rest of the world). But this time the culprit is much bigger than General Motors and the crime scene far wider than Flint, Michigan. From Middle America, to the halls of power in Washington, to the global financial epicentre in Manhattan, Michael Moore will once again take filmgoers into uncharted territory.
With both humour and outrage, this film 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 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 thousands of jobs being lost every day.
Capitalism: A Love Story 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 he's posed throughout his filmmaking career: Who are we and why do we behave the way we do?
