Ubiquitous actor Olivia Colman plays an alter ego called Oblivia Coalman in this satire designed to draw attention to the way our pension money is being used to fuel the climate crisis. Director Raine Allen-Miller seems to have encouraged her star to hit pantomime levels of villainy and Mekel Bailey's costume design makes it look as though Colman is preparing to do something beastly and vaguely sexual with at least 101 Dalmatians.
The aim of this film is to persuade individuals to exert control over the companies that run their pensions. The ad itself concedes that this will not serve financial profitability, and therein lies the rub... in reality, the overwhelming majority of people support climate activism only in a very abstract way, and, when faced with the choice of making a personal sacrifice or taking their chances with a smouldering planet, they choose the latter.
