Mr. Smith got to Jeff City!

"I saw this film in a St. Louis theater during Jeff Smith's second political campaign.
It's a straight forward budget documentary. It did a good job of addressing some
of the issues surrounding successful and unsuccessful campaigns, from family
support to name recognition to party political allegiances. During the film I felt I
had met an idealistic candidate depending a little too heavily on other young people
to get elected, yet in the end admired his positivity, practicality, and persistence. Jeff
Smith appears to be committed to being a positive change agent for all people,
and I look forward to watching his career from afar. I think all politicians should have an
opportunity to have their political start filmed! I found the film enjoyable and entertaining
and anyone interested in the political process should enjoy it as well."

"I was expecting a great documentary. So, my expectations could have been too high for this movie to meet. But anyway, I would say this is a good movie because it illustrates the manner in which politics is insulated from outside ideas. The simple fact is that few can introduce an innovation into the system because it has become too institutionalized. This movie does that well. The only problem would lie in the poor editing."
