Whose side are you on?

The US election has dominated the news for most of this year. Democrat or Republican? Obama or McCain? Sarah Palin spends how much on clothes??!?! Since I'm Canadian, I can't vote, but the debates, rhetoric and media have been quite interesting.

My dear friend, Rebecca, directed and stars in the movie Swing Vote, a comedic take on American politics.

"Disillusioned and desperate following the results of the 2004 presidential election, best friends Casey and Billie stumble upon a plan to swing the 2008 election. Through seduction and sexual manipulation, the underground organization that these women create sets out to not only sway the male Republican vote, but to create lifetime Democratic converts. Casey and Billie's experiment soon takes on a life of its own as their army of women are thrown into a whirlwind of encounters with the "other side."
What happens when pillow talk turns to politics? What would happen if we reached across the aisle? A timely, innovative, daring and thought-provoking comedy, Swing Vote challenges the American political system, exposes moral hypocrisy and questions our sense of American values. Swing Vote is a modern twist on Lysistrata meets The Wedding Crashers: sexy, relevant, intelligent and down right hilarious."

The film will be screening at several theatres. Check out the site for a theatre near you.
