Taking a swing at politics

This past weekend my family watched Swing Vote, starring Kevin Costner. It is a harmless feel good silly movie about a U.S presidential election being determined by the vote of a single voter. He is a "loser" who is a single dad with a 12-year old daughter with a strong sense of civic responsibility. On the other hand, in all its silliness, at times it is good biting satire of political ambition and the process. It also highlights the pain of children with negligent parents.
