Wow. What an inspiration!...

This is what it's all about. It is not the exploitation of the poor farmer per se. It is about how the poor farmer can break the cycle of poverty, adopt new and simple technology, to improve the lives of the farmer and his family, and to empower the building of communities.

Ducal, well done!

This movie is a documentary about Hugh Jackman and his wife going to Africa and meeting a coffee farmer. While on the trip, Hugh realizes that it is important to have fair-trade coffee which caused him to launch his company. The documentary is actually very interesting and educational since it reveals the harsh realities of what farmers in third-world countries go through and how they can often be exploited. I found it particularly interesting that a millionaire celebrity and his wife felt the need to make this documentary since it shows them using their fame for good. I would rate this movie 4.5/5 stars and recommend it to those who like learning new things and exploring different societal structures. @The_Reviewer of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library
