Recommended if you don't know about Minimalism, otherwise not so much...
If you have not heard about the minimalism movement and feel curious about it I totally recommend this movie (available on Netflix), it could be eye-opening and inspiring for you.
However as a person who has read a few articles and watched a few videos on minimalism and consumerism issues, I found this documentary lacking in deep, new and engaging ideas. It felt more like a long promotional video for the book with interesting stories of people thrown in between.
The excerpt from president Carter's speech was the most interesting part to me, the message might not be new but it was delivered with clarity and strength.
