State of the Union

State of the Union ★★★½

A honest man gets consumed by the hypocrisy and ambition of corrupted people. A man too honest to become president. 

Capra exploring again how politics and honesty don’t go together and that idealism and cinema can really uplift people’s beliefs in a better future. 

Hard to see a Republican with such progressive ideas. I guess in 1948 things were quite different than now...
