Born Rich Documentary

Last night I watched the 2003 documentary Born Rich, about some of America and Europe's most wealthy heirs and heiresses.

Jamie Johnson, heir to the Johnson & Johnson fortune, interviews some of his peers about how their wealth or impending wealth has affected their lives. They tell fascinating stories about when and how they first realized that their parents were wealthy. It's remarkable to watch them try to make sense of the life that they have been handed and the burdens that come with it.

I reallly enjoyed it. If you're interested, you can watch the film on Hulu or Netflix instant play.
