Gregg Sulkin, Nicola Peltz, Ben Rosenfield, & Grant Gustin star in the new movie Affluenza which is in theaters and available on demand now.
In the film, it’s suburbia, 2008. Swept up in a heady pre-recession world of absentee parents, plentiful booze and casual sex, aspiring photographer Fisher Miller (Ben Rosenfield) escapes his middle-class life for the moneyed mansions of the young, beautiful elite. With a stash of high-quality weed and a vintage camera, he gains access to his gorgeous cousin Kate’s (Nicola Peltz) circle of wealthy and indulged friends, just as their entitled reality is about to spin out of control. A revealing take on the hidden perils of privilege.
The film is like a present-day reimagining of The Great Gatsby that takes place during the recession of 2008. We had the chance to sit down with Gregg, Ben & Nicola to discuss the dark themes of the film and their characters. We also chatted about the pressures of Hollywood, how technology is having a positive or negative affect on our generation and they even did their best Long Island accents for us!
