You've Been Trumped

 

Year: 2011
Country: UNITED KINGDOM
Run Time: 96 minutes

The black Range Rovers wend their way through the dunes of Balmedie, on the Scottish coast in Aberdeenshire. A scrum of reporters rushes to meet them. Donald Trump, his carefully coiffed mane blowing sideways in the wind, steps out and approaches the microphone to speak. Trump has big plans to turn this pristine coastline, home to generations of farmers and salmon fishermen, into a tourist attraction for the rich. His project, a billion pound investment, involves building two golf courses, a 450-room hotel, and 950 holiday apartments. Though the Aberdeenshire council questions the environmental sustainability of the project, the Scottish government, ever mindful of job creation, takes it out of their hands and green-lights it. What follows is a Braveheart battle for Scottish independence, pitting local residents threatened with eviction against the megalomaniacal American billionaire. In YOU'VE BEEN TRUMPED, British filmmaker Anthony Baxter, a polite version of Michael Moore, interviews furious residents, hounds government authorities, and gets roughed up by the local constabulary as he throws light on The Donald's unsavory business practices. –B.B.
