what's the matter with kansas?

Documentary film, 2009, 90 mins.,

Based on the Thomas Frank‘s best-selling book, What‘s the Matter with Kansas? shows how Kansas transformed from an outpost of radicalism to a bastion of conservatism. Unforgettable characters and their stories shed new light on our nation‘s political divide.

3 and a half stars “One of the Ten Best Documentaries of 2009. I‘ve rarely seen a documentary quite like it. It has a point to make but no ax to grind. It doesn‘t connect the dots, nor does it need to. It takes no cheap shots. It is all there to see.”

“For an engrossing visit to another world — one that doesn‘t involve 3-D glasses — What‘s the Matter With Kansas? is the film to see.”

“A funny, smart and important look at the intersection of religion and politics in America today. It‘s a movie that needs to be seen in both red and blue states, by liberals and conservatives alike.”
