Charlie vs Goliath
By Reed Lindsay
Former Catholic priest Charlie Hardy is 75 years old and has no money or political experience. But none of that dissuades him from running for the U.S. Senate in his home state of Wyoming. Charlie’s platform, which transcends party lines, is to get money out of politics, raise the minimum wage, and increase access to healthcare and higher education. As he and his three campaign volunteers crisscross the state in a decades-old school bus, can they sustain their grassroots campaign and effectively shake up the political establishment?
The film challenges the belief that our political process is fair and democratic. Ultimately, CHARLIE VS GOLIATH is a story about the power of hope even when all seems lost.
