Vote for Shelby
3 April 2006 | by jphanleySee all my reviews

Shelby Knox will make you laugh, cry, get angry, and then laugh again. Shelby's adventure takes her all over the conservative bastion of Lubbock, preaching the good word of Tolerance, Education and Snappy Outfits.

The politics are one-sided, but that's okay - Texas politics of late have only ever been one sided, and in the opposite direction. This film gives Shelby and her message a fair shake...even though her fellow Texans don't seem to want to give her that same courtesy.

This film is a wonderful look at the power of the individual in the face of seemingly insurmountable opposition. And at the end of the day, it doesn't matter if you win or lose: it's how you play the game. And Shelby plays a good game!
