A short post today as I’m on holiday (it was all that talk of summer, holiday accommodation and suncream that did it!), but I just wanted to say have a happy weekend everyone!
I quite fancy watching the movie above – No Impact Man.
Apparently it’s a documentary about New Yorker Colin Beavan and his family, who decide to go completely “green” – giving up all the modern comforts, from electricity to anything consuming fossil fuels, in an attempt to cut their carbon footprint drastically. According to the blurb “the cameras capture the toll this well-intentioned, year-long project takes on Beavan’s wife and baby daughter, as well as the ways it brings this family closer together“.
I’m just not sure whether it’s some kind of publicity stunt or gimmickry, but I’ll give it a go before passing judgement.
Have you seen No Impact Man? What did you think?
POST EDIT – I’ve heard on several trusted accounts that the movie is a bit of a stinker so I’ve given it a miss for now!
