We recently added Freakonomics to the DBRL collection. The movie, based on the bestselling book, played at Jesse Auditorium in October with producer and Mizzou alumni Chad Troutwine in attendance. Here’s a synopsis from our catalog:
The highly anticipated film version of the phenomenally bestselling book about incentives-based thinking by renowned economists Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner. Like the book, the film examines human behavior with provocative and sometimes hilarious case studies, bringing together a dream team of filmmakers responsible for some of the most acclaimed and entertaining documentaries in recent years.
The movie has separate sections directed by Morgan Spurlock (Super Size Me), Rachel Grady and Heidi Ewing (Jesus Camp), Alex Gibney (Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room), Eugene Jarecki (Why We Fight) and Seth Gordon (King of Kong). Check out the official movie site for more info.
