In 1982, Sue Gilbert interviewed her wealthy parents about their lifestyle and values. Set on their lush private island (Greenaway Island), the film covers diverse topics such as the historical relevance of servants, the hidden agenda behind US politics, spirituality and religion. The Gilberts argue for tradition, marriage, and faith in God. In probing these subjects, Greenaway transcends the personal realm to become universal and provocative.
Beyond America explores French culture through a high school junior's eyes. Skye learns about cheese and mushroom hunting, debates the Iraq invasion with her host family, and enjoys the love of a naughty French boy. As she grows into her cultural education, Skye learns unexpected lessons about the world and herself.
