Emmy(R)-winning filmmaker Alexandra Pelosi ('Journeys With George') explores scandalized former New Jersey governor Jim McGreevey's new life as a spiritual advisor to female prison inmates and a soon-to-be ordained Episcopalian priest.
Intent on escaping her coastal bubble, Alexandra Pelosi sets out on a cross-country trip to engage in conversations with fellow Americans in an effort to gain an unfiltered understanding of other perspectives.
At one point during filming, George W. Bush took the camera from Alexandra Pelosi and turned it on her. Pelosi included this moment in the finished film and gave Bush a credit for cinematography. See more »
I got to see a screening of this movie at the Newport International Film Festival a few summers ago. The sold out show made it a joy to have a theater full of people laughing at the series of segments captured during his 2000 campaign for President. I got to see the movie for free since I was volunteering my services to the film festival. After the movie, I had to drive the director of Journey's with George to the train station in the nearby town. She was dressed all in purple. From her blouse to her pants and sneakers, she stuck out like a sore thumb that was bruised purple. Like her wardrobe, the movie stuck out amongst the rest of the film screened at the festival. It was a hit amongst its audience and fans of the local republican base in Newport, Rhode Island.
