« This film captures, through the moving frame of one family’s personal and professional commitment, the compelling arc of Obama’s campaign for the Democratic party nomination. Journeying from their home in Paris, the filmmakers and their sons talk to an incredible range of people, capturing them with an honesty and intelligence that is remarkable. The film is an antidote to mainstream news portrayals of the campaign, and delivers many reasons for hope about the future of the American experiment ».
