NO IMPACT MAN: A DOCUMENTARY (2008) Not rated; 93 minutes
Colin Beavan, a New York City writer and self-proclaimed liberal, has big plans for his new book. He decides on a grand experiment: to live one year with as little impact on the environment as possible. The problem is, the project requires his wife Michelle, an espresso-guzzling, Prada-worshipping business writer, and their young daughter to be fully on board. The family embarks on a year of no electricity, television, cars, toilet paper, elevators, or newspapers.
"The movie is a hilarious, riveting must-see about a family as it breaks down almost all the way and then reinvents itself." --Salon.com
