In research for his next book, newly self-proclaimed environmentalist and author Colin Beavan vows to make as little environmental impact as possible for one year: no more automated transportation, no more electricity, no more non-local food and no more material consumption. That is, until his espresso-guzzling, retail-worshipping wife Michelle and their two year-old daughter are dragged into the fray. “Proof that ‘eco’ and ‘entertainment’ aren’t mutually exclusive” (Variety), this charming film provides a candid account of one family’s struggle with their radical lifestyle change. (Laura Gabbert & Justin Schein, 2009, 90 min.)
