"This Revolution" is a documentary-style drama that accidentally acquired real footage when the film-makers were arrested while making a scene outside the Republican National Convention (can't afford to stage a convention protest? go shoot the real thing as your backdrop! but try not to let the cops cuff your leading actress...)

Roger Ebert writes: "Rosario Dawson should be on those Sunday morning political talk shows, as a guest or a host, either way. She is so intelligent and fiercely opinionated that I forgot, for a moment, I was talking with a movie actress, and got into my Problems of the World mode. .. here she is at Sundance in Stephen Marshall’s “This Revolution,” starring as a New York woman whose husband was killed in Iraq, and who has joined a group organizing protests at the 2004 Republican National Convention.... The movie is a deliberate homage to Haskell Wexler’s “Medium Cool,” the famous blend of fact and fiction set during the protests at the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago. Again this time, the central relationship is between a news cameraman (Nathan Crooker) and a woman he meets on a story."
