Worth Watching - Oct 5: Jimmy Carter Man from Plains Trailer
Occasionally we dabble in the world of documentaries when the good ones come along. Jimmy Carter Man from Plains is one of those that you may just need to see. Like Sicko, like In the Shadow of the Moon, this is a documentary that even if you don't like documentaries you need to watch the trailer for anyway. I know political discussion is a very sensitive subject, but Jimmy Carter is a man with a whole lot of charisma and power. Thankfully they've captured his work in the recent years on camera and put it together into this documentary. Watch this trailer, you won't regret it.
The film has received incredibly positive reviews in its limited showings at the Venice Film Festival and Toronto Film Festival. Here is a brief snippet from Variety:
"The story that emerges, illustrated with footage from the time, delivers a surprising lesson in the importance of small details and the ultimate power of negotiation."
