Grassroots: Trailer

Trailer for Grassroots.

Its 2001 before Twitter, before the flash mob and before Obama. A political unknown named Grant Cogswell (Joel David Moore) decides he must take down Seattle City Councilman Richard McIver (Cedric the Entertainer). Grant has only one dream, but its a big one: an elegant monorail gliding silently above the citys wet streets, with only a tiny footprint like a kids lemonade stand! on the ground. He is apoplectic with rage over McIvers mass transit proposal: a ground rail train he thinks will destroy lower class neighborhoods, wreak environmental harm on the local salmon population, and destroy the city.

Grant has no campaign contributors, a tendency toward outbursts of profanity, and a snowballs chance in hell until he lures recently fired alternative-weekly reporter Phil Campbell (Jason Biggs) to run his campaign. Phil may be a political neophyte, but he has the tact that Grant lacks and a what- the-hell-I-havent-got-anything-better-to-do attitudeuntil he recruits an army of wild-eyed young volunteers to back their unlikely crusade, and the impossible begins to happen.
