Hollywood sermon that says 'if u don't agree w/me, ur wrong'

How to win an argument: antagonists must be rich, white, and elite; protagonist must be humble, poor, and non-white. The topic has to be capitalism vs. culture and if you disagree with the protagonist, you deserve to die. Great message. It is Hollywood at its most hypocritical. If you eat meat, are not poor (which is defined by others' perception of you, so beware) or white, this movie may find you GUILTY just because it can. There are no winners here.

Excited to watch with my teenage kids. Hoping there was a message my kids would decifer and remember. First part and the middle had good dialogue and we could feel the movie was going to send an important message. Kind of movie that we all talk about for days and pass along to friends. Indie movies tend to have funky endings but this one left me frustrated. They had so much more that could have been spoken Loudly and heard. I don't lik the classic Hollywood Ending but I wish they would have finished their thoughts.
