This Changes Everything
Provided by Metacritic.com
This Changes Everything is genuinely stirring as it details improbable victories and green-economy opportunities.
Yet as Everything moves from nation to nation, the cohesion and potency of its message dissipates.
A macro argument is being filtered through people’s local concerns, but without getting to know the subjects, you can understand their suffering, but can’t feel it.
The Hollywood Reporter
While the stories the film tells are lively and never uninteresting, they fail to ignite an emotional explosion. The reach is also too broad for a film.
This Changes Everything isn't a game-changer, but it is jarring enough to be scary.
The New York Times
Moving, humane and unfailingly polite, This Changes Everything presents a Panglossian view of approaching disaster that (according to the film’s publicity notes) seeks to empower rather than to scare. But we should be scared.
Los Angeles Times
They may not do enough to alter the climate change film landscape, but Klein and those impassioned protesters provide something that has been in short supply in the predecessors — namely, a modicum of hope for the future.
