EEFF15 – Review: Generation Right

film reviews | movies | features | BRWC EEFF15 - Review: Generation Right

Generation Right has been appropriately released shortly after the recent elections, to take a look at how Thatcherism has resulted in where we are today both politically and socially.

The documentary itself offers up no new information, juxtaposing clips of Thatcher’s speech upon entering Downing Street with footage of rioters and poverty-stricken city dwellers. Various university lecturers, journalists and MPs are interviewed, discussing the class and social divide that was an outcome of Thatcher’s greed and capitalism.

Despite the lack of originality in content, director Michelle Coomber provides an entirely new perspective by contextualising the history of Thatcherism to today’s issues. Specific modern day media focuses are flipped on the head through Coomber’s explanations and insights. An example is the look at low cost housing, which explains how the so called “Broken Britain” is a result of the dismantling of state housing in the 80s as well as wide spread unemployment, which led to severe heroine problems in both rural and urban areas.

While there is awareness to this background information, Coomber presents the history in a step-by-step way, resulting in a crystal clear conclusion as to how modern day conservatism has and will continue to build barriers between social and economical classes. Definitely worth a watch.
