Jeanne with John Lithgow

You won’t believe Lithgow as Winston Churchill. Even he didn’t! In my interview with him for The Saturday Evening Post he told me, “I would never cast myself as Winston Churchill but when Steven Daldry cast me as Winston Churchill, I couldn’t say yes fast enough.”

The Real Way the Election is Being Rigged

The Best Democracy Money Can Buy from Cinema Libre Studio on Vimeo.

“The Best Democracy Money Can Buy” entertained and engaged me. It also thoroughly frightened me by exposing evidence of extreme hanky-panky surrounding efforts to suppress votes.
The approach is clever and appealing – so much that it can take us away from the message. The attention-getting style is fun in the way that “The Big Short” and Michael Moore took on significant subjects with statistics and smirks. The resources and research are very compelling and extremely terrifying. If we know about the dirty tricks and tricksters why isn’t more being done to clean up our voting system?
So, I say, see the film- it will make an impression. But don’t stop there. Pay attention and help shine a light on every horrific plot to deny the dignity and the vote to thousands of people.
