The Ballad of Jack and Rose
There is definitely a sticky human-element in this coming-of-age film, but in the effort to intellectualize itself, it debates lifestyle choices, and grassroots activism against impending "progress." The plot does not seem to aim for a moral or conclusion, but if seen as a kind of dream, it can leave you thinking about the loss of sacred land, losing communities that work hard for the greater good, and the loss of innocence. A provocative film that green activists might enjoy relating to.
