Movie Info

Janeane Wilson is a conservative Iowa housewife who works as a home health aide, keeps busy in her garden, and attends a local women's bible study group. But as the 2012 presidential election draws near, she is determined to find a Republican candidate who will take America back from the Democrats, repeal Obamacare, defund Planned Parenthood and get rid of gay marriage - issues that she feels are destroying the country she loves. She dives into Iowa Tea Party politics and the lead-up to the Iowa caucus, but a crumbling economy causes her to lose everything she holds dear -- her job, her marriage, her health, and her home. As Mitt Romney, Michele Bachmann, Rick Santorum, Rick Perry and Newt Gingrich criss-cross Iowa during her hour of need, Janeane presses them for answers that she and many of her fellow Americans would like to hear. -- (C) Official Site

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

  • This cinema demi-verité is a fascinating, discomfiting hybrid of real candidates and a fake constituent, but director Grace Lee's own politics and tactics are something of a muddle.

    Nov 1, 2012 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • A commentary on the immense gap between a desperate citizen and the politics she had hoped might help her.

    Oct 11, 2012 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A presidential-year docudrama about a Tea Party conservative's futile search for a candidate that leaves her no option but to pull the lever for Obama in November.

    Oct 13, 2012 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Grace Lee's film betrays its own fictions by overloading on cheap worst-case-scenario mythology.
