5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely worth watching, February 1, 2010

This review is from: Lemonade (DVD)
"Lemonade" is a 35-minute documentary that tracks the reactions and responses of people who've been laid off from the advertising industry during the current recession, but its appeal should be universal, no matter where you work and no matter whether you're still working or have been laid off.

The 16 individuals in the film talk openly about their feelings when they lose their jobs -- anger, disbelief, fear, a sense of failure -- recreating the mood that's been prevalent in many an office over the past 18 months. But then something happens: they move on. They create their own websites, they start up their own businesses, they become artists and filmmakers and instructors. The story is that simple, but there's something really wonderful about watching each individual triumph. As one of them says, "I finally feel that I'm doing something that matters." Or as Mark Proulx, the driving force behind the film says, "It's not a pink slip, it's a blank page." And as someone who still works in the ad industry, I can't help noticing that they look calm...relaxed...and could it be-- happy?

So it's not about advertising, it's about recognizing and grabbing opportunities and re-sorting priorities. And that's a message for anybody.
