Editorial Reviews

Doris Haddock-- Granny D-- is the nation's oldest political newcomer. A former housewife and office assistant, Doris was happily retired for over 20 years--but when her husband died, she needed a reason to live. So at the age of 90, she laced up her sneakers and walked across the United States to rally against the influence of big money in elections. Her epic journey galvanized popular attention to a political system gone awry, but for Doris the walk was a warm up. Now 94 and still fed up with politics as usual, she jumps at an unexpected chance to run for the U.S. Senate against incumbent Judd Gregg (an intellectual sparring partner of George W. Bush). With just 4 months until Election Day, this great-grandmother of sixteen faces a series of challenges that would be daunting for a candidate of any age. Doris and her motley crew of political aces and amateurs work against all odds to craft a feisty campaign that personifies her democratic ideals of , by and for the people. A tale of doggedness versus dollars, grit against greenbacks, RUN GRANNY RUN is an unlikely portrait of a remarkable activist and citizen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly Inspiring October 11, 2007
By Callie
This film is about so much more than an unexpected Senate run by a senior citizen. It is about making the most of every minute of our lives, of one woman's determination to help make the world a better place and step up to the plate in spite of a million reasons not to. It's about age, yet it's not just about age. We see through Doris's eyes how an elderly person is sometimes dismissed and treated like a child, in spite of an obviously quick mind and reported history as a smart and successful businesswoman. Yet we also see Doris as the "regular citizen" who fights for what she believes in and doesn't wait for others to do it -- a lesson we all can learn at any age. I loved this film!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning portrait of an American icon October 3, 2008
Filmmaker Marlo Poras has done it again with another beautiful documentary film that captures the heart, soul, and courage of an American original, Doris "Granny D" Haddock. At the age of 90 she walks across the US to bring attention to corruption in politics, and at the age of 94 she runs for the US senate! I can't even get up in the morning and put on pants! Poras frames the life of this troublemaker in both intimate and expansive ways, connecting her own struggles as a great great grandmother fighting mortality and a citizen fighting to make America the country worth being proud of again. A marvelous film.

Granny D is an amazing story that should inspire anyone to say, "I can do it, or at least, I can try". Her spirit is wonderful to see and anyone who cares about anything should see this and realize how to truly make meaningful change.

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing August 16, 2009

It's greatly entretining and a stimulating documentary. It's America at its best. If you think this is not anymore the land of opportunity or you have the "However,its too late for me" kind of attitude, don't miss it, it will change your mind.

A home movie type tribute to the campaign of Doris Haddock who is a great citizen who does not want special interest running this country into the ground and fought for it. The recent financial meltdown is a direct result of the corruption that exists in Washington and Wall Street, against which she fought. I also feel hat campaign financing reform is absolutely essential in returning the control back to the people and out of the hands of the special interests
