The End of Suburbia is a portrait of a dream which has been really expensive. This surprising documentary, directed by Gregory Greene, analyzes the american dream based in the mobility with the car thanks to the cheap oil period.
Since the World War II the US people has invested a lot in their suburbs, with the promise of economically accessible space, familiar life and progress.
The myth of "suburbanism" or "from the countryside to the city in fourty minutes", mixed with the peak period of motor companies, creates this american dream in the postwar, the house with barbacue and a dog running around the kids.
The reality is not only an esthetic and rude slap, it is that the fossil energetic resources are starting to erode, this utopia starts up to destroy as a playing cards castle and the dream, spread out to the rest of the planet turns into a nightmare.
