Storyline

Doris "Granny D" Haddock is the nation's oldest political newcomer. At 90, she laced up her sneakers and walked across America to rally against the influence of big money in elections-making both friends and enemies inside the Washington beltway. Now 94 and still fed up with politics as usual, she jumps at an unexpected chance to run for U.S. Senate. With just four months until Election Day, Doris and her motley crew of political aces and amateurs craft a feisty campaign that personifies her democratic ideals of a government of, by and for the people. Written by Marlo Poras

A documentary of our times that is a must see for all age groups
8 November 2007 | by joecary-1See all my reviews

This is a remarkable story of a remarkable woman. Granny D reinvented herself at the age of 90, and is still fighting at the age of "97" to make the American government a government of the people, for the people and by the people. She was last seen walking up to the New Hampshire state house lobbying for a bill for government funding of state campaigns.

We all should take a lesson from her and do more to make our democracy a more representational institution. The film follows her campaign for the US Senate. The director did a great solo job in producing, directing and editing the film. This is not your average talking heads documentary. I urge all to buy the DVD.
