IMDB: Grassroots (2012) - IMDB
IMDB Rating: 4.6
Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 5.3
Portland Oregonian -
Perhaps the most curious omission from the movie Grassroots is that there's no mention at all of the classic "Simpsons" episode "Marge vs. the Monorail."
Grassroots is a movie where bad ideas, because they're the ones championed by the "correct" side, are king. It never acknowledges that sometimes idealism is just another kind of manipulation.
The Hollywood Reporter -
A campaign movie for viewers who, if they care about politics at all, certainly don't require the full Sorkin treatment.
Registers like a quaint display of local color.
After losing his job, a journalist reluctantly agrees to help his oddball friend with his bid to earn a seat on the Seattle City Council.
