Hilarious, hard hitting and heartfelt
2 December 2009 | by samtuttySee all my reviews

This is a very rare example of a documentary that transcends its medium and succeeds in its presentation of fact and its creation of drama. Devin Ratray, the protagonist, is in love with then-secretary of state, Condoleeza Rice, and his best friend Sebastian decides to document his journey across America as he interviews old friends and opponents of Condi's in an attempt to get closer to her; to share her interests, to understand her hopes and dreams and how they formed her into the woman she is today. The interviews give real insight into the life and mind of Condoleeza Rice.

The musical love tapes that Devin regularly sends to Condi are not only really funny, but well composed and serve to humanize Devin. Anyone who has seen and loved Roger and Me and/or My Date With Drew has to check this out!
