A documentary that lives up to the word, it documents the lifestyles and political positions of several Kansans
23 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When this film finds national distribution, which it thoroughly deserves, it's a must-see for every politically minded American, left, right, or center. As a true documentary - not the editorials we've come to call documentaries these days - it gives viewers a glimpse into some of what makes Kansas voters align with a political position that seems rather perpendicular to their own interests. The characters range from endearing to maddening, and every one expresses an honesty that's neither promoted nor berated. The film itself doesn't offer an opinion so much as it opens a window into new ways of understanding other points of view.
