Every day our changing climate pushes us closer to an environmental catastrophe, but for most the problem is easy to ignore. David Hallquist, a Vermont utility executive, has made it his mission to take on one of the largest contributors of this global crisis-our electric grid. But when his son Derek tries to tell his father's story, the film is soon derailed by a staggering family secret, one that forces Derek and David to turn their attention toward a much more personal struggle, one that can no longer be ignored.Written by
There's no way that plot summary does justice to how entertaining, nuanced, and emotional this film is. It ends up being a complex character study -- more like a Hollywood drama than a documentary, right down to the plot twists. Except that it's real. And it's an approach to a character that Hollywood rarely nails, because this dad defies all cliches, even in his "denial." He's painfully, wonderfully human. It should be on one of those "sleeper" movie lists, because I think it came out a while ago and I only just heard about it, and yet I loved it.
