It’s finally here: the film with all the answers. The documentary that dares to look at the hidden side of everything. Based on the bestselling book written by famed New York Times
journalist Stephen J. Dubner and “rogue economist” Steven Levitt, Freakonomics The Movie
brings together some of the world’s most groundbreaking, innovative filmmakers to try and find out what really keeps this planet spinning. Morgan Spurlock (Super Size Me
), Alex Gibney (Gonzo: The Life And Work Of Hunter S. Thompson
), Seth Gordon (King Of Kong
), Eugene Jarecki (Why We Fight
) and Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady (Jesus Camp
) have joined forces to bring to life some of the craziest and most controversial social theories.
Mixing pop culture with economics the results are shocking, humorous and essential. Have you ever wondered if the name of your child can determine their success in life? Does legalised abortion lower the crime rate? Can young school children be bribed into getting better grades? All this and more is expertly tackled in this groundbreaking documentary that’s like nothing you’ve ever seen before.
