Storyline

When Joe Debs, the hard-drinking grandson of legendary labor leader and founder of the Socialist Party in America, Eugene V. Debs, gets arrested for drunk driving, he chalks it up to just another casualty in his long and illustrious drinking career. But as he soon discovers that the corrupt prosecuting attorney is trying to put him in jail for political reasons, Joe decides to run against him for the Democratic nomination for governor. During the tumultuous campaign, Joe discovers the trials and tribulations of politics, building a great appreciation for his grandfather's legacy, but an even greater understanding of himself.

Socialists in the House!
5 February 2015 | by (New York, New York) – See all my reviews

Paul Fleschner and William Tanoos wrote, directed and starred in this independent comedy alongside Tom Sizemore and cameos from Jesse Ventura. Hinting at the millennial generation's suspicion of corrupt party politics (we have had a do-nothing congress for almost a decade), the hard-drinking grandson of the great socialist American Eugene Debs decides to continue the family tradition and run for governor of Indiana. The film is located almost entirely in Terra Haute, which is the birthplace of Eugene Debs, and it captures the spirit of a plain- speaking populist politician who sets out to unite people in the American heartland. Fleschner and Tanoos give a nice performance, and Sizemore hits is out of the park. Although I kept wishing that they exploited their material more deeply (both the Terre Haute setting and the Debs legacy), I'm giving these first time filmmaker a thumbs up.
