Grassroots | ★★★★★★★

You might like this movie if you like quirky stories based on real life events. It showcases Phil Campbell's book and tells the story of Grant Cogswell's (Phil's friend) 2001 run for Seattle city council. I liked the story and really loved the way that the young men changed as they were faced with the reality of the political race and the kindness of their opponent.

I thought that Jason Biggs (as Phil) and David Joel Moore (as Grant) were good in the roles and really funny together. And Cedric the Entertainer did a credible job as the incumbent city councilman. The 99 minute running time seemed about right and was sufficient to tell the story without dragging it out. In the end I liked the way that local politics was portrayed.

I think Grassroots tells a positive story and, on a scale of ten, give it ★★★★★★★.
