Trunkline 2012: Saturday Political News in Review and Cinema Politico Movie of the Week – 10/22/11

This slightly comedic romance details the relationship between two people on the opposite ends of the political spectrum. Taking place during the course of the 2004 Republican National Convention in New York City, a Republican man meets back up with a Liberal woman he knew in college. The two begin to fall in love, even though they each have trouble reconciling this new personal passion with their political passion. The tension each feels is exacerbated when a friend of the young woman reveals that he is going to be in apposition to disrupt the President’s speech at the convention. The film was shot on location during the actual 2004 Republican Convention, leading to the arrest of some of the filmmakers when they ended up capturing some of their footage without permission.  The flick really isn’t that good, but its different and if you’re reading this site, you’re probably the type who can’t pass up a movie dealing with politics, the Republican National Convention and a conservative vs. liberal ideological clash.

It stars, Matthew Mabe, Woodwyn Koons, Alek Friedman, Alicia Harding, and  Jennifer Brown.
