Loved it.
15 June 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Thought-provoking and insightful. I thoroughly enjoyed the film. The film is thoughtful and honest. It's also timely with another election coming up. I wish there were more films like this that help us to listen to voices from both sides of the political aisle and help facility discussions about what it is that divides America as a country. I have seen the film twice at two different film festivals, and each time I got something different out of it. It was also an amazing experience to watch people get so excited about the film afterwards and the discussions it provoked. The film is well-made and very moving. It speaks to all of us.
