America's Heart and Soul

Critics Consensus

Louis Schwartzberg's sprawling tour across America highlights the heartland's visual beauty, but this resolutely uncritical inquiry in the nation's soul is frustratingly shallow.

Movie Info

Directed by filmmaker Louis Schwartzberg, America's Heart and Soul traverses across thousands of miles of American soil in an effort to showcase not just the beauty of the land, but the very soul of the United States -- its people. Exploring groups from American Indians to generation-spanning farming families, Schwartzberg endeavors to capture the stories of an extremely diverse population in hopes of displaying their common American dreams and values. Billed as a celebration of the country as told by its people, the documentary also includes the stories of several steel workers, car-show attendees, religious figures, and over 20 other unique individuals.
