This interesting 1967 NFB film is a nice twist on Jack and the Beanstalk.  It’s amazing that 40+ years later people are still concerned about urban sprawl, and suburban life.  Jack yearns to be different and to find a life that isn’t the same as everyone else.  Even in wealth, Jack is merely unique but not different. His dreams, goals, and aspirations remain the same as those around him.  Perhaps we are all Jack, striving to be ourselves, while settling to be like everyone else.
