Ever had an eco-ironic moment? An example: Back when I lived in Santa Monica, I took a walk around the block and turned back into the alleyway behind my apartment to see a woman slowly sorting the recyclables from the trash and depositing them in the correct bins — with the engine to her giant SUV running. This is not the green way to clean out your car!
Now comes a funny short film about another eco-ironic moment. Directed by and starring Felicity Huffman, “Lesster” shows parents so focused on getting their child to an Earth Day parade that they don’t see any of their own wasteful habits around the home. The child — dressed up as “Lesster” the solar-powered superhero — tries to correct their ungreen ways — and gets scolded for it!
