5.0 out of 5 stars Documentary about the political process, January 29, 2009
This review is from: Anytown USA (The Film Movement Series) (DVD)
This is very interesting documentary about the political process in the local elections for the town mayor. Small town in New Jersey has local elections. It is apparent that local citizens are less than thrilled with their current (Republican) mayor. The race is interesting because the current mayor is legally blind and so is his independent party challenger - a young man who has been battling brain tumor, Democratic nominee is well known in the city but he seems to be battling illness too which he prefers to keep a secret.

Political strategy, process of getting citizens involved and engaged, the ambition, the drive, and support of the family are all aspects of the story.

The conclusion and aftermath are amazing. By the end of the documentary, viewer will be so entangled with everyone's destiny that it will be fireworks explosion of the emotions about the events that follow the actual end of the election process. This film gives a complete story about democratic process of this country, its citizens that are important part of its process and private citizens that are becoming a willing participants in trading their very private lives for a very public ones. Memo to "Film movement" company - this is one of your best productions ever!
