Uplifting Watch with a Rock Solid Thesis
The way that this film connects the idea of the "Hero" generation to social justice movements, specifically to the importance of climate action, is brilliant, and makes the thesis of the film- how millennials can save the world- rock solid. Starting the film off with the ideas of cyclical generational patterns and the designation of millennials as the newest "Hero" generation ties in just perfectly with the almost hopeless, world-ending perspective that most people have of modern crises today, specifically climate change. By identifying all of these major issues as something that millennials have been solving, the film beautifully asserts that Gen Y is fulfilling its "Hero" role by literally saving the world, whether that be by protesting systemic racism with the BLM movement, fighting for women's rights, or hosting massive climate demonstrations and marches in impacted areas. The activists and politicians featured within the film also bolster this assertion- Michelle Rodriguez gives a very balanced and down-to-earth performance as the film's witty narrator, and other interview subjects like Xiuhtezcatl Martinez, Shailene Woodley, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez each do wonders to keep the inspiration feel of the documentary high while conveying important information about the major issues they each cover, like climate change. The clear-cut nature of this thesis also serves as a buoy to keep the film grounded- both emotionally and in terms of keeping the narrative consistent. The idea that millennials are working actively to save the world runs through every aspect of the film, bringing a much-needed hopeful note to the serious topics it addresses that lingers long after the first watch.
