| We need more of these types of films today.
I was truly impressed with this movie. It entertainingly told us how important our votes are. It was not heavy handed, but showed us how important each and every voice is. How anyone can run for public office and represent certain values. It showed us how ugly politics can get, the smear campaigns, the lying and payoffs. It is something many of today's voters are painfully unaware of. In this day of apathy, it is time for films such as these to be released and remind us of how wonderful this country is, and how important a single vote is. It is a personal right, a way of running our own government, something that is woefully ignored in today's filmmaking. Capra said it many times over in films such as "Meet John Doe" and "Mr. Smith Goes To Washington" -- they were big hits. Hollywood -- it is time to do something right for our country!
