Where to Invade Next (Michael Moore, 2015) 120min
Just in time for an election season that features an unhinged billionaire, a grumpy socialist, and two political dynasty names the public is weary of — here comes America’s Favorite #1 Political Provocateur, Michael Moore with his amazing new film, Where To Invade Next.
Already honored by numerous festivals and critics groups, Where To Invade Next is an expansive, hilarious, and subversive comedy in which the Academy Award®-winning director, playing the role of “invader,” visits a host of nations to “steal” some of their best ideas and bring them back home to the U.S. of A. His first film in over six years, already being hailed as “his best film yet (Salon),” the creator of Fahrenheit 9/11 and Bowling for Columbine, has returned with an epic movie unlike anything he has ever done — an eye-opening call to arms to capture the American Dream and restore it in, of all places, America.
“One of the most genuinely, and valuably, patriotic films any American has ever made… Optimistic and affirmative, it rests on one challenging but invaluable idea: we can do better.” — Godfrey Cheshire, rogerebert.com
After the screening, filmmaker Michael Moore will discuss Where to Invade Next.
