Storyline

With a net worth of over $60,000,000,000, Warren Buffett is truly a one-of-a-kind billionaire. The legendary investor still lives in his modest home in Omaha. At 86 years old, he drives to the office every morning to manage Berkshire Hathaway, the fifth largest public company in the world. But more surprising than his humble lifestyle is his moral core. The same principles of decency and integrity that helped him pile up a fortune led him to give it all away in the largest philanthropic donation in history. Becoming Warren Buffett chronicles the evolution of a boy from Nebraska who became one of the most respected men in the world, and the heroes who helped guide him along the way. By allowing access to his life and never-before-released home videos, Buffett offers a glimpse into his unique mind to help us understand what is truly important when money no longer has meaning.

Simplistic and inspiring
24 April 2017 | by mandaharpoldSee all my reviews

I am an avid documentary viewer. At first thought, it would be about just another wealthy business mogul. Despite that, I decided to have a go with it. Very interesting in a simple way. Light in nature and somewhat refreshing. By the end of the film, I was not only awestruck and inspired; I was left feeling broken, sobbing like a child. Like looking at stars through a telescope, only a fraction of his life can be seen. One can never truly know, nor have the time to display every aspect of ones life. The direction the film took, portrayed Buffet the husband, father, investor and philanthropist. As one viewer previously commented, it had a lot of Susan in the film. How could you portray the human side of this man without including the biggest part of his life? Amazing to me still, that despite everything, Buffet's marriage lasted 52 years. That warrants praise in itself. The love story touched my heart, and even opened my eyes to the things I personally take for granted. I commend Mr. Buffet's family and the Gates for their commitment to humanity. This film spoke to me on such a deep level, perhaps more than intended. To me, it is not just a documentary but a goal to which mankind could aspire to become. May the love of many grow the hearts of the few.
