Fast Food Nation, The Movie
Fast Food Nation, the movie, launches today at theaters nationwide. We are big fans of Eric Schlosser's bestselling book about the fast food industry. The film, co-written by Schlosser and director Richard Linklater, is timed to coincide with the 100-year anniversary of the publication of Upton Sinclair's groundbreaking book The Jungle. The story is a fictionalized version of the book, with a star-filled cast of characters including Wilmer Valderrama, Patricia Arquette, Bruce Willis, Ethan Hawke, Kris Kristofferson, and Avril Lavigne.
We haven't seen the movie yet, but according to The New York Times' Manohla Dargis, it's the "most essential political film from an American director since Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11." You want fries with that?
