Dracut Reads: Film Viewing of Fast Food Nation

Join us for our first Dracut Reads event, a film viewing of Fast Food Nation

“Fast Food Nation” tells three interlocking stories set in the fast food business: Don Anderson (Greg Kinnear) is an ad exec for Mickey’s fast food chain, sent to investigate a case of contaminated frozen burgers at the Colorado meat-packing factory where illegal Mexican immigrant workers work in less than satisfactory conditions. Two of those workers, Raul and Sylvia (Wilmer Valderrama, Catalina Sandino Moreno), have crossed the border hoping to start a new life together in America but facing the difficult working conditions at the plant. Amber (Ashley Johnson) is a normal high school teen working at a Mickey’s restaurant who wants more from life than to end up like her mother (Patricia Arquette) who also works at a local fast food place."

MPAA Rating: R
Running Time: 1 hour, 56 minutes
