Brief word on Surge (2020)

Showtime documentary follows several women who are running for political office in 2018 in response to the Republican take over of the White House.

This is a solid documentary about some genuinely good people you would love to have represent you. I love that the women in this film genuinely believe in what they are trying to do. Often in documentaries like this you get a sense that the candidate you are following is less then genuine, that perhaps they have an ulterior motive in why they are running. Here all of the women genuinely want change. You bond with them and the outcome of their races result in tears (I'll leave this to you to discover if they are joy or sadness.

This is a hopeful film that is recommended.
