About the Movie
The story behind the epic six-week boycott of the Massachusetts-based Market Basket supermarket chain in the summer of 2014: when beloved CEO Arthur T. Demoulas is deposed by his cousin, majority shareholder Arthur S. Demoulas, Market Basket’s 25,000 employees and millions of supportive customers successfully enforce a boycott of the 71-store regional chain, leading to a leveraged buyout of the company, the reinstatement of “Artie T.”, and a victory for democracy.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: There are good lessons to be learned from the Market Basket saga. "We the People" doesn't trust the audience to figure them out for themselves.
Fresh: The film is more effective as an emotional appeal for better corporate behavior than a stringent analysis of the complicated scenario.
Fresh: Combining court documents, footage of the protests, and interviews with reverent personnel, reporters, and politicians, Reid's fast-paced and engaging film appears to play out as a simple question-and-answer exercise.
Fresh: The filmmakers have made this for the purposes of near-term celebration rather than long-term understanding, and they're probably judging their audience well.
Gotta Love the New Englander
This is as much as a lesson in business as it is a lesson to treat others with dignity and respect and PAY people a LIVING WAGE. A must for any business owner and a lesson to the top CEOs in the world.
