(Welcome to The Quarantine Stream, a series where the /Film team shares what they’ve been watching while social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.)
The Movie: WeWork: Or the Making and Breaking of a $47 Billion Unicorn
Where You Can Stream It: Hulu, starting April 2.
The Pitch: A documentary that chronicles the rise and fall of WeWork, a commercial real estate company that inexplicably became valued at billions of dollars – before everything came crashing down.
Why It’s Essential Quarantine Viewing: WeWork is almost like a companion piece to the dueling FyreFestival documentaries – portraits of big ideas that were never fully, or realistically, realized, ultimately resulting in disaster. It’s a fascinating story that’s slickly, but sometimes slightly, told by filmmaker Jed Rothstein.
