Daily Dose Pick: Freakonomics, The Movie

Based on the New York Times bestseller by journalist Stephen J. Dubner and economics professor Steven D. Levitt, the movie adaptation of Freakonomics entertains while exploring facts.

Taking such topics as parenting, cheating, crime, and bribery as points of departure, producer Chad Troutwine assembled six independent filmmakers, including Morgan Spurlock, Alex Gibney, and Eugene Jarecki, to direct a collection of documentary shorts. By applying the science of economics to its subjects, the film reveals some surprising answers to how the world really works.
