A funny musical satire which has two deep themes : mud of politics and how a young and innocent woman can be dragged into it and lesbian love in the middle of the political mood with a very possible happy ending!
Liberty Smith (Jaclene Wilk) is the young and innocent daughter of a preacher with a magnificent voice and she looks and sounds as the perfect energizer for the conservative presidential campaign.
Even her name is double edged for she is Liberty in politics and the liberty goes on in everything that happens, especially when Liberty meets Washington insider, Nikki (Cara AnnMarie) and falls in love with her. Someone immortalizes their kiss and they appear all over TV. Now Liberty has to choose between her one true love and her career in politics, although she can have one in music, too.
Also, I enjoyed the presidential character, the Republican candidate a stereotypical copy of a fun George Bush.
The best thing in this movie is the music. Andy Kirshner (writer/director/composer a professor of Music and Art & Design at the University of Michigan) and Debbie Williams have managed to create a beautiful musical with a sensitive story on a solid ground. Enjoyed the hilarious song “Girls Like Boys” – “Girls like picking roses, and boys like punching noses.”
