The 78-minute film is hosted by Barrie Zwicker, and features James Howard Kunstler, Peter Calthorpe, Michael Klare, Richard Heinberg, Matthew Simmons, Michael C. Ruppert, Julian Darley, Colin Campbell, Kenneth Deffeyes, Ali Samsam Bakhtiari and Steve Andrews.

The film's website offers three sample video previews.

A review of the film from Alternative Press Review reads:

"The End of Suburbia marshals an impressive array of evidence that the growing energy demands of the 'American dream' in suburbia will eclipse our planet's ability to provide it. The suburban way of life will soon become economically and ecologically impossible to maintain. We will see the inevitable collapse of the suburban lifestyle and the end of the American Dream. And it will happen within our lifetimes."
