Storyline

Suburbia, 2008. Swept up in a heady pre-recession world of absentee parents, plentiful booze and casual sex, aspiring photographer Fisher Miller 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 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. Written by Lookbook

Really wanted to like this...but...
1 October 2015 | by ScarriemonsterSee all my reviews

Watching Affluenza was another 80 minutes of my life that I'll never get back, and without any real dividends. It was a little like Playground of the Bummed Millennials, which I confess is out of my ken. "Hey! Let's get every twenty something actor we can get our hands on and make a totally obnoxious movie!" I get it's Gatsby inspired, but it seemed more like a carnal, hedonistic Sweet Valley High (and I hate those things!) Maybe the original idea had been decent, but only traces of a coherent plot and interesting/affable characters made it through the final edit. I hate it when indie films go so far south so quickly. And to think I bought the damn thing expecting better.
