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 perils of privilege. Also starring Gregg Sulkin, Grant Gustin, Samantha Mathis & Steve Guttenberg. (c) Film Buff

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (9)

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

July 22, 2014 | Full Review…

"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.

July 11, 2014 | Full Review…

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

July 11, 2014 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

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