Burt minus the bees

The NYT reminds us that the documentary about the founder of Burt’s Bees who lives a pretty simple life in Maine these days is available for
download.

“When a cadre of screaming fans in fake beards and bee costumes greet Burt at a Taiwan airport, it’s impossible not to marvel at his strange existence.” – Abby Garnett, Village Voice, Jun 3, 2014

“I’ve got 40 acres. And it’s good and sufficient and it takes good care of me. There’s no noise. There’s no children screaming. There’s no people getting up at 5 o’clock in the morning and trying to start their car and raising hell. Everybody has their own idea of what a good place to be is, and this is mine.”
