Summary On the 20-year anniversary of his ground-breaking masterpiece Roger and Me, filmmaker Michael Moore returns with Capitalism: A Love Story, exploring further the issue he's been examining throughout his career: the disastrous impact of corporate dominance on the everyday lives of Americans (and by default, the rest of the world).But this time the culprit is much bigger than General Motors, and the crime scene far wider than Flint, Michigan. From Middle America, to the halls of power in Washington, to the global financial epicentre in Manhattan, Michael Moore will once again take film goers into uncharted territory.With both humour and outrage, Moore's film explores the question: What is the price that America pays for its love of capitalism? He finds the American dream is now looking more like a nightmare as families pay the price with their jobs, their homes and their savings.Michael visits the homes of ordinary people whose lives have been turned upside down; and he goes looking for explanations in Washington and elsewhere. What he finds are the all-too-familiar symptoms of a love affair gone astray: lies, abuse, betrayal... and 14,000 jobs being lost every day..
