Storyline

Millions (a lottery story) follows the lives of six different big money winners to show how dramatically life-changing the experience can be for the average person. From the farms of the Midwest and the heart of the Bible belt to the hurricane-riddled retirement communities of South Florida, Millions documents the stories of personality and material wealth. The film examines fame, growing old, the plight of the small farmer, and the role of evangelical Christianity in contemporary society. Millions paints a picture of how extraordinary circumstances can deeply affect one's identity, and tells a story of luck, loss and redemption. Written by Anonymous

This should have been great
20 July 2008 | by Eagles409See all my reviews

This documentary should serve as an example of how to make something that should be exciting and make it boring. When I read the description for this movie it sounded great, learning about several people who have won the lottery and how it has changed their lives. Well the people that did this documentary took this cool concept and made it as boring as possible. I was hoping to see interviews with these peoples friends and family, find out if they had changed. Interviews with the winners about whether or not family and friends started asking to borrow money. Stupid things they had purchased, what they had done with the money and what kind of major impact it had on their lives. This documentary has none of that, instead the only people that are interviewed are the people that won the actual lottery, none of their friends or family. The main portion of the documentary is taken up by a couple of people that were part of a larger group that won the lottery. They are all farmers from Minnesota and all seem like really nice people, but they don't do anything with their money and there is really nothing interesting about their stories. The other 2 people interviewed for this are both NY lottery winners from the 80's and they are both out of money. Both of them seem like they might have had very interesting stories, but we really don't get any of that from them. Since no friends or family are really interviewed either, we don't get much of the story. This documentary could have and should have been much better than it was, which is too bad.
