An indie film currently in limited release is a romantic comedy titled Politics of Love. The mainstream alternative movie starsBrian White and Mallika Sherawat as two young campaigners in love who happen to be on opposite sides of the 2008 Obama-McCain U.S. presidential race.
Despite Loretta Devine and Ruby Dee co-starring, the film opened last weekend without much fanfare.
The official synopsis reads: Politics makes strange bedfellows, but never stranger than when a sexy, savvy, African-American conservative Republican reluctantly falls for his Democratic counterpart: a beautiful Indian-American Obama campaign volunteer. Sparks fly, tempers flare, heads turn, and romance blossoms for this mismatched pair of lovers in the frantic and intoxicating days leading up to Election Day. Can the politics of love conquer all?
