    Seth Savoy’s “Echo Boomers”

    Director Seth Savoy’s rip-roaring debut feature film Echo Boomers follows a group of privileged but indebted and underemployed millennials as they tear across Chicago, pillaging and destroying homes of the rich. The movie is actually inspired by real events — and Seth’s quest to “smuggle social commentary” into mainstream action movies.

Wry nice show

Dears,

Really great and touching. Opens my mind to many things and I realize how amazing people can be.
Sheds light on the limitless and imagination driven of what people from all around can do.

Just don’t like that you advertise for alcohol
