Can bribery be a force for good?
Does your name decide your destiny?
What if most of what we think we know about human nature is all wrong?
FREAKONOMICS is the highly anticipated film version of the phenomenally bestselling book about incentives-based thinking by Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner.
Like the book, the film examines human behaviour with provocative and sometimes hilarious case studies, bringing together a dream team of filmmakers responsible for some of the most acclaimed and entertaining documentaries in recent years: Academy Award® winner Alex Gibney (ENRON: THE SMARTEST GUYS IN THE ROOM, CASINO JACK AND THE UNITED STATES OF MONEY), Academy Award® nominees Rachel Grady and Heidi Ewing (JESUS CAMP), Academy Award® nominee Morgan Spurlock (SUPER SIZE ME), Eugene Jarecki (WHY WE FIGHT) and Seth Gordon (THE KING OF KONG).
