Review: "Finding North"

U.S. Documentary

*** (three stars)

The facts presented in this documentary are harsh: One in six Americans don't get enough to eat on a regular basis, and what they can afford to eat is usually junk — largely because U.S. farm policy is weighted toward grains for processed food, not fruits and vegetables. Filmmakers Kristi Jacobson and Lori Silverbush present these facts in a highly polished package, intercutting real-life stories of people struggling to find sufficient food with interviews with policy experts and celebrities who have made hunger their cause (namely Jeff Bridges and "Top Chef" judge Tom Colicchio). The urgent

message is packaged well — if a bit too slickly — with beautiful cinematography, animated statistics and a score by T-Bone Burnett and The Civil Wars.

— Sean P. Means

"Finding North" screenings:

Tonight, 8:30 p.m., Prospector Square Theatre, Park City

Saturday, Jan. 28, 12:45 p.m., Broadway Centre Cinemas, Salt Lake City
