Truth is stranger than fiction and civil dis is no exception
14 August 2012 | by nicholaskirkpatrickSee all my reviews

I have seen plenty of civil disobedience content out there. However, combined with perfectly-timed music, it's even better.

This movie is about a realistic and reasonable person with realistic and reasonable expectations. This movie appeals to all people with even an ounce of morality in their heart. It does not talk down to you or assume you are stupid.

It's great to see a video that provides some great context for the recorded recent acts of civil disobedience (The narration was key in me considering this movie a perfect 10- especially at the very beginning). Civil dis isn't about angry people without a cause- it's about right and wrong.

If this does not promote New Hampshire as the civil disobedience capital of the world, I don't know what *does*! That being said, civil dis is a *worldwide* issue and this movie will hold relevance to any audience no matter where they are.
