About Movie: Grassroots is an upcoming comedy political movie. Story centers on a recently fired journalist who reluctantly agrees to spearhead the Seattle City Council campaign of his eccentric friend, a former pedicab driver with a burning passion for the Monorail. Grant is running against Richard McIver, played by Cedric the Entertainer, and although McIver has more money and more supporters, Grant's blind passion paired with Phil's strategy makes Grant a contender.
Additional Notes:- Based on the memoir "Zioncheck for President," written by Phil Campbell.
Movie Review:- A short-tempered, unemployed music critic who likes to dress as a polar bear thinks he can harness the power of the people to ride the monorail to political victory in Seattle. And he's right. Almost. It's before Twitter, before the flash mob, before Obama. It's 2001, and political unknown Grant Cogswell decides he must take down Seattle City Councilman Richard McIver. Grant has only one dream, but it's a big one: an elegant monorail gliding silently above the city's wet streets.
Direction, Performance and Music:- The casting all around was excellent. Performance is good and Direction is outstanding. Topic is very interesting.
Overall:- A witty, well-cast, sometimes ingeniously paced political comedy.
