It’s Tuesday, and once again we have a new ‘Pick of the Week’ from Starbucks. This time around it’s a free movie rental, Force of Nature: The David Suzuki Movie. Previous weeks have alternated between apps and music, and this is the first time we’ve seen a free movie rental.
Force of Nature was released in 2011, has a Rotten Tomatoes rating of 86% and currently is a $14.99 purchase ($5.99HD/$4.99 rental) in iTunes. It profiles what the iconic Vancouver-based David Suzuki wants to tell the world:
David Suzuki, iconic Canadian scientist, educator, broadcaster and activist delivers a last lecture — what he describes as a distillation of my life and thoughts, my legacy, what I want to say before I die. Filmed before a live audience, in front of a memory box of moving, distilled images, he articulates a core, urgent message: we have exhausted the limits of the biosphere and it is imperative that we re-think our relationship with the natural world. Suzuki looks unflinchingly at the strains on our interconnected web of life and out of our dire present circumstances, he offers up a blueprint for sustainability and survival. The film interweaves the lecture with scenes from the places and events in Suzuki’s life. As such, the film is a biography of ideas forged by the major social, scientific, cultural and political events of the past 70 years.
The movie comes in at 2.9 GB in size in HD and 1.26GB in SD. Let us know if you grab a code and watch the movie.
