Home (2009) Movie Review

Home is a documentary of Earth that was released simultaneously worldwide on June 5th, 2009 in cinemas, on television and the internet, and on DVD.

The film has breathtaking aerial footage from 54 countries showing the pure beauty of our planet and is filled with amazing facts. Glenn Close narrates the journey accompanied by some very moving original music. We are shown the history of Earth and how everything is interconnected. The impact we have had on the planet over our short existence is profound and disturbing.

Is there hope for humanity and our planet?

To get the message out the film maker has made this documentary available online for free; watch it here. The DVD version has over 20 minutes of additional footage. I highly recommend buying this DVD to support the cause and to see the additional footage.
