CHARLIE VS GOLIATH
NAME OF FILM: CHARLIE VS GOLIATH
DIRECTOR(S): Reed Lindsay
GENRE: Documentary Film
SYNOPSIS: Former priest Charlie Hardy is 75 years old and has no money or political experience. But none of that dissuades this 21st-century Don Quixote from running for the US Senate in his home state of Wyoming. Charlie’s courage to run a principled campaign against money in politics attracts a ragtag group of young volunteers determined to challenge the status quo. With particular relevance in this cynical era of US politics, Charlie vs Goliath is a story about the power of hope even when all seems lost and the importance of optimism no matter how bleak the circumstances.
