Movie Info

Suburbia, 2008. Swept up in a heady pre-recession world of absentee parents, plentiful booze and casual sex, aspiring photographer Fisher Miller (Ben Rosenfield) escapes his middle-class life for the moneyed mansions of the young, beautiful elite. With a stash of high-quality weed and a vintage camera, he gains access to his gorgeous cousin Kate's (Nicola Peltz) circle of wealthy and indulged friends, just as their entitled reality is about to spin out of control. A revealing take on the hidden

Kevin Asch's sophomore feature attempts to tackle weighty themes but ultimately feels as shallow as the lives of most of its principal characters.

"The Great Gatsby" Lite screenplay by Antonio Macia hasn't the sharpness of satire or the momentousness of an American tragedy, veering instead toward middling melodrama.

An empty recasting of 'The Great Gatsby' among Long Island rich kids circa 2008.

Straining to find a correlation, even metaphorical, between teenage hedonism and economic collapse, "Affluenza" never coheres.

The movie's ennui feels like so much posing, and the Bret Easton Ellis-lite characters are monotone.

The film is an empty shell, reducing a complex lament to a shallow portrait of wealthy hedonists behaving badly.

A stilted, utterly phony drama of rich-kid angst that thinks it's saying something about the hidden perils of privilege but is actually just an exercise in wheel-spinning inanity.

Wealthy young people party in overly ambitious drama.

Though it prefers F. Scott Fitzgerald's voice to any whisper of its own, Affluenza is well-acted and often cutting and canny in its condemnation of entitled, apathetic youth.

"Affluenza" thinks it is deep when it is merely trite. It illuminates nothing.

The film is like an episode of Gossip Girl that's mistaken itself for one of the great satires by Evelyn Waugh.

Handsome-looking but all-too-familiar drama about wealthy Long Island teens with too much money and time on their hands makes no inroads into the adolescent angst that afflicts the silver-spoon set.

Nothing is revealing or surprising in this horse-beating tale of spiritual poverty among the extremely wealthy.
