Fast Food Nation: The Movie

I'm looking forward to the release of the movie version of Eric Schlosser's 'Fast Food Nation '. I loved the book, about the various facets of our fast food chains, from their meat handling practices to their pursuit of a temporary workforce, to what the implications of this culture are on our landscape. I am especially curious about the movie because it's fiction rather than a documentary. The International Herald Tribune gave it a pretty positive review, and I think so did NPR. This movie is currently playing in a theater near you.
