More than a green-theme it's about outrageous democratic hope
13 September 2015 | by elaine-92832See all my reviews

What grabs you right from the get-go is the story line of a novice candidate running to unseat a secure, long-time incumbent. It quickly deepens into the transformation story of a scientist fed up with elected decision-makers ignoring science, who decides to take the leap and go for government himself. This personal saga of determined, and sometimes humorous, persistence provides the central theme. Along it are arrayed several sub-plots on conflicts of interest between environment and economy and the people who are committed to addressing those conflicts. More than a green-theme film, it is very much a story of populist democracy in action that outraged, amused and engaged me to the end.
