Michael Moore Unveils Title for New Film
Oscar®-winning filmmaker’s October 2nd Release a “Love Story” About Capitalism
(Beverly Hills, CA) July 8, 2009— Capitalism: A Love Story is the newly unveiled title of Oscar-winner Michael Moore’s latest documentary feature. Overture Films will release the film domestically on October 2, 2009, and Paramount Vantage will handle international distribution. As previously announced, Moore will return to the issue that began his career: the disastrous impact that corporate dominance and out-of-control profit motives have on the lives of Americans and citizens of the world.
On why he chose to make a ‘love story,’ Moore stated that it was time for him to make a ‘relationship movie.’ "It will be the perfect date movie," said Moore. "It's got it all -- lust, passion, romance, and 14,000 jobs being eliminated every day. It's a forbidden love, one that dare not speak its name. Heck, let’s just say it: It’s Capitalism.”
