Good Introduction to the FIRE movement
14 September 2019 | by jone-82606See all my reviews

This film is a solid introduction to the FIRE movement and many of the leading voices in the FIRE community. The film does a good job of explaining the key concepts of FIRE in an approachable, easy to understand manner. The strongest and weakest part of the film was following one family in the process of changing their lifestyle to persue FIRE. Each step of their journey is interesting. The glimpses into the family's life show as the FIRE concepts in practice. However, because the film show glimpses into their life the documentary can feel jolting at times. Overall, a good documentary worth watching.
