Participant Productions, the same studio that heralded An Inconvenient Truth into theaters returns with an insider's look into former president Jimmy Carter's book tour as seen through the eyes of director Jonathan Demme. Using an experimental approach, the camera follows the promotional tour and subsequent reaction to the ex-head of state's controversial tome Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid, which theorizes a Middle East peace solution and how Israel's staunch stance has negatively effected the region. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, All Movie Guide

could have been interesting by MbDooley February 18, 2012 - 12:11 PM PST
jimmy carter is an enormously principled politician, man & christian. but this film is generally a pretty dull record of his book tour--mostly shots of people walking around hallways with silence or ambient noise interspersed with middling interviews. you're better off reading the wiki about his book to understand the politics or watching the american experience episode about his life.
