How can you talk about babies and love babies without mentioning this film?
This film made me feel in equal parts like becoming a crusader and having another (the one too many) glass of red wine. From the age of six I have considered myself a conscientious person, and this movie while washing that away also confirmed it. I know that sounds odd, but the movie showed me the dissonance in my life. I have been so caught up in the survival mode that parenthood can thrust upon one so suddenly, that I forgot what I really wanted, needed and was put on this planet to do. I now feel shame for the oversized SUV I drive and BECAUSE I HAVE TWO BEAUTIFUL AND INNOCENT CHILDREN A NEW ABILILITY TO CHANGE MY OWN WAYS AND SPREAD THE WORD IN WHATEVER WAY I MAY. I do not want them to pay for my extravagance. Luckily, my two-year-lease (on an oversized SUV) expires very soon and I can make a more educated and moral choice and I can do so many things to help on an individual scale. I am deeply saddened by how uneducated I had let myself become. Please rent, Netflix, or purchase An Inconvenient Truth. It won’t allow you to wash away your fears but it will allow you to be a more informed planetary citizen/parent. A fancy cocktail (which even the most hardened prohibitionist will crave while watching this film) will only delay the pain….trust me. Just let it in.
