Movie Review Friday -- The Ballad of Jack and Rose
Posted Aug 24 2008 6:37pm
Escape to the movies with one of our "Film Fridays" selections. Each
week we'll feature a movie review with environmentally or socially responsible
themes that’s currently in theaters or available on DVD.
There is definitely a sticky human-element in this coming-of-age film, but in the effort to intellectualize itself, it debates lifestyle choices, and grassroots activism against impending "progress." The plot does not seem to aim for a moral or conclusion, but if seen as a kind of dream, it can leave you thinking about the loss of sacred land, losing communities that work hard for the greater good, and the loss of innocence. A provocative film that green activists might enjoy relating to.
