About the Movie
This film takes an intimate look at Jack Johnson's music and tour greening initiatives. When Jack goes on the road, he doesn't just show up and play music. The tour partners with local non-profits, local food vendors and strives to leave a lasting positive impact. The entire tour is an extension of the environmentally conscious and socially engaged life he leads along with his wife, Kim. After years on the road, playing venues around the globe, the Johnson's have established an inspiring way of touring with a focus on creating as little impact on the earth as possible. Along the way, the tour gives a platform to dozens of local non-profits working to educate and inspire others to make choices that benefit our communities and the greater global environment. While following Jack's 2014 west coast tour, this film highlights the Johnson's Kokua Hawaii Foundation, the All At Once campaign, and several non-profit partners and businesses focusing on plastic free initiatives and sustainable local food systems. Additionally, the film highlights the unique way in which tour is run. From traveling on biodiesel-powered buses, to sourcing organic and locally grown meals to carefully disposing of waste created along the way. The goal of the tour and this documentary is to inspire people to get involved, make the right choices, and enjoy the music along the way.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Even its most audacious device - the undifferentiated braiding of pure documentary and narrative footage - feels a tad old hat relative to newer hybrid forms in nonfiction filmmaking.
Fresh: This isn't a story of rock 'n' roll bad behaviour or larger than life characters, and in some ways that's refreshing.
Rotten: If you're looking for a film to dissuade people from joining a band, this is it.Michael Winterbottom's docudrama explores the dark side of touring -- not the sex and drugs (oh, for more of that) but the utter tedium.
Fresh: On a formal level, this is a subtle and clever piece of work.
Im in the movie twice!
This documentary highlights all of the reasons why Jack Johnson is my favorite musician. Jack performs great, feel-good tunes that also convey very important messages. It sends an even stronger message that Jack and his band not only talk the talk, they also walk the walk.
He really should've called this, "Every Song Sounds Like the Rest"....because seriously...
