Fifteen-year-old Owen Norris is at the top of his graduating middle-school class, and wants to know how the world works. He has no friends, spends almost all of his time studying, and has an almost nonexistent relationship with his white-collar parents, whom he sees for ten minutes a day. But his boring suburban life changes when he meets Congressman Lawrence Connor and his young nephew Caleb. Connor is immediately taken with Owen’s intelligence and wit, and Caleb is immediately taken with Owen. As Caleb and Owen become close friends, Connor offers Owen a chance to learn how the world of politics really works by acting as his “youth campaign spokesman” for the upcoming Senate primaries. What starts as a fun way to make some extra summer cash takes a dark turn as Owen learns the frightening truth about the deranged secret world of politics in which he is now involved.
Idealistic 15-year old Owen gets the chance of a lifetime to be the youth spokesman for U.S. Senate Candidate Lawrence Connor, only to be exploited in a fierce campaign of TV and radio ads,... . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

Jim F (fr) wrote: This was billed as a moving drama. And up to a point it was an interesting drama until the eldest son returned back from his peace keeping mission as a volunteer for the US army in the Middle East. He'd only been gone a couple of months and returned traumatized by how many people he'd killed. I find it very unbeleivable that any volunteer would be thrust into any kind of front line fighting with no army experience. After that, this movie just became ridiculous. The mother run off with her knife weilding abductor and burgular for a brief period. The father found an envelope full of cash and then ran into the night stumbling over stratigically placed piles of rubbish before being hit by a car and pushed to the side of the road like a dead deer. While all this was happening the youngest managed to learn to play 'Clair de Lune' to perfection on lessons paid for from 3 months of school dinner money. If this is the best Japanese cinema can produce then they are a long away from the mark. If it isnt, then why show it on British Television? Rubbish
Matthew L (es) wrote: A continuation of the Animated Series, which works on some levels whilst completely falling flat on its face in others. The plot fine, if a little thin to be stretched over 75 minutes and the voice work of Daly, Delany and Henriksen is fine, but Boothe as Luthor just doesn't work. It may have more to do with the shift in characterization that they have chosen to depict Luthor with. Gone is the cold calculated figure of the Animated series replaced by his wacky comical twin. No bad but not brilliant at the same time.

Cynthia C (kr) wrote: Like many movies made from novels, this is complex and lacks the customary cut and dried ending we expect from movies. To me that makes it better.
Skye B (br) wrote: It may not be the best film on the planet, but it has been judged a little too hard in my opinion - mainly because there is always a sentiment to bash Madonna present before anyone has seen the film. Thus, a 60-65% film (as this is) receives a much lower rating, because it start with a -50 before it is screened. This is quite sad, because it is worth a watch. Specially for the uncomfortable sex scenes.

Josh M (kr) wrote: A Cannibal Holocaust "wannabe" and not even close to being as intense. The production values are low and the acting emotion needs work.
Eric R (gb) wrote: Fuckin crazy ass movie. I can't say I like this as much as 'Tommy' but it has some great moments. Love the production design so much; its crazy. Just freaking nuts.
Alex B (ru) wrote: This is a good movie- the locations are dead-on authentic...I remember when the South looked like that. The story is ice cold (unusual for those of us used to Burt Reynolds in more light hearted fare). The stand out acting performance (and there are quite a few good ones) is Ned Beatty as the Sheriff.... Beatty is often type-cast as a likable, bumbling type- but occasionally gets a chance to show his acting chops. His Sherriff Connors is a cold psychopath under an affable cover...well done.
