Synopsis:
World-famous British comedian and activist Russell Brand joins forces with acclaimed director Michael Winterbottom (The Trip, 24 Hour Party People) on a polemical documentary about the financial crisis and gross inequality we currently face. The rich have got richer; where a CEO of a major British company used to earn 10 times the average wage of his workers, now they earn 150 times. According to Oxfam, the richest 80 people in the world own as much as the poorest 3.5 billion. It would now take 300 years for the average cleaner, cleaning the offices of his senior boss, to earn the same salary taken home by the same boss last year.
Using a mixture of documentary, interviews, archive footage and comedy, Russell Brand takes us from his hometown Grays in Essex, to the heart of London 'City' and on to the Big Apple. This daring film will shake up the world by revealing the bewildering truth about how the people at the bottom are paying for the luxuries of those at the top. Things Can Change...Things Do Change.
