The documentary follows Chisholm from the announcement of her candidacy in January to the Democratic National Convention in Miami, Florida in July.

Latest Review Additions:
Silver City (in Film )
Silver City is a thinking man's film. It has an involved storyline that requires attention from the viewer. Watch it for excellent filmmaking and Sayles's political ideology.
Head in the Clouds (in Film )
Stuart Townsend and Charlize Theron are a real life couple, but have no chemistry whatsoever in the film. The love story is not convincingly portrayed and that theme is the arc of the film. 
The Cookout (in Film )
It's time to drop all pretenses and call out the people inundating us with an unrelenting stream of cinematic garbage. The Cookout is a good idea with a terrible script. 
Suspect Zero (in Film )
Suspect Zero is another failed attempt in the serial killer genre. The studio behind this would save themselves loads of money in marketing and distribution by sending this straight to video.  It's that bad.
Vanity Fair (in Film )
Mira Nair, the renowned Indian director behind Monsoon Wedding, really overstretches the scope of the story.The result is a disjointed film that becomes incredibly tedious to watch.
We Don't Live Here Anymore (in Film )
We Don't Live Here Anymore is an intense, personal drama about two married couples and their reactions to infidelity. The acting is absolutely superb.  Every performance is unique and right on the money.
