"EVERYTHING’s GONE GREEN is about when you
get older and you feel certain doors are closing very
quickly on you. It deals with that feeling of now or never."
says Douglas Coupland.
In what is a sly comment on the times since his first
publication of "Generation X" over a decade ago,
EVERYTHING’S GONE GREEN is the first story from popular
writer Douglas Coupland written specifically for the screen.
Ryan, late-twenties and not getting any younger, is tempted
into a money-laundering scheme but struggles with his
ill-gotten gains while trying to find happiness. In this
comedy, Ryan tries hard not to try hard but is surrounded by
over-achievers. His hippie friend has gone capitalistic in a
not-so-legal way. His older brother has always been
capitalistic in a legal if not-so-ethical way. His father,
after losing his job and his faith in the system, has found
profitable promise outside of the establishment. Even the
woman he desires is comfortable to be cared for by a
big-time car thief.
As Douglas Coupland has done in the past, new questions are
raised about the period we live in. Is it possible to just
drift into the new century? Are the middle-class facing
extinction? When is “enough” enough? And is there any hope
that not everyone wants to be a millionaire.
