Storyline

A young Republican man comes to New York for the first time to be a delegate in the Republican National Convention and falls into an unlikely affair with a girl he knew in college - a democrat who has returned to the city to protest the convention. Conventioneers is an ironic Romeo & Juliet story set against the real 2004 RNC that explores the consequences of the divide in American politics. Written by Mora Stephens

An Eye Opener for the politically naive
29 April 2009 | by petresti96See all my reviews

This unscripted movie filmed in the middle of protesters is leaving me surprised to say the least.The producer,operator and director had been arrested between 17-40 hours.

As a person not involved politically yet bummed by the "lack" of protests on the American political scene I had benefited from a believable lesson based on political backgrounds that actually happened in Summer of 2004 in the Big Apple(500 000 protesters).

So palpable and flexible in filming the protesting against Bush political stand,casualties and censorship.There are shots of the march of one thousand coffins (in which one of the actors took active part) and shots from a real soup kitcken/pantry played with collaboration of non actors.

So provocative and fresh, an eye opening experience.An introspection into media censorship that reminded me to search deeper for the raw news .We are also presented with a lesson on prejudice via two caracthers representing the liberal and conservative Texan points of view.With regard to romance we learn of two human beings who reconnect at different,conflicting levels ultimately.The movie is a gentle suggestion for citizens who choose to not vote and the openness of one's mind.When judgments are eliminated people can find common grounds no matter what the circumstances are.
