On the eve of their high school graduation, two academic superstars and best friends realize they should have worked less and played more. Determined not to fall short of their peers, the girls try to cram four years of fun into one night.
UK based review not considering politics (until the end)
There's a lot of 1 star reviews and 10 star reviews which indicate political bias, I gave 8 stars for which I'll explain. Being based in the UK I have no party preferences in the US, I don't have any in the UK as I don't believe in the vote.
This documentary looks at the grassroots movement that took place in 2018 to get ordinary working class people (women of colour) into power against those taking money from big pharma/lobbies etc who are supposedly not really in it for the people.
It mainly follows 4 women who are trying to get into Congress. We hear personal stories such as that of Amy Vilela, Cori Bush and Paula Jean Swearingen.
However, unless you've been living in a cave without internet, you've heard of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The newbie who is challenging Joe Crowley, unchallenged for 14 years and no one is expecting to be beaten.
It's the fact that AOC takes most of the screen time that those who oppose her views are giving 1 star reviews. Personally, I would say if you are after the journey it takes these women, in AOC's case a David v Goliath battle, you will enjoy this like I did.
To end politically, the reason why I don't vote is I don't believe that people are listened to, you have Brexit here in the UK and look at how the people were deceived by politicians to leave, now 2 years down the line, it's clear the Brexit we may well get is not the one we wanted. This is what happens when politicians stop serving for the people. In the USA, all sorts of money is donated to politicians for their campaigns, of course there is going to be reciprocal support when it comes to making laws, these will not favour the people but the corporations, the sooner this becomes more apparent, the better. No one should have to die because of the complexity of insurance and the profit driven motives of those corporations.
