A very well crafted movie...
30 November 1999 | by BarnmanSee all my reviews

I was flipping channels and happened upon this little gem of a film. Paul Rodriguez gives a great performance, portraying a house painter who runs for City Council and gets a real taste of the political world. His opponent, CCH Pounder, is marvelous as a former radical turned world weary politician. Una Damon is great as the campaign manager and Cliff Robertson really gives a down to earth, understated performance as the retiring councilman Rodriguez and Pounder hope to replace. One note; when I saw the listing for this film it was titled "The Race".
