Al Franken: God Spoke


Al Franken: God Spoke chronicles Al Franken’s rise to political prominence as the bane of right-wing media and scourge of Republicans everywhere. Once a regular comedian on SNL, Franken’s recent appearances are more likely in malls, town halls, and on college campuses, where he insists on fact checking media personalities and calling out politicians and pundits on their “misinformation.” Partly the story of the launch of Voice of America, Franken’s liberal radio outlet, and partly the story of why Franken becomes the only Jewish New Yorker to run for Senate in Minnesota, this film offers a nuanced, complicated, and hilarious portrait of a man with a mandate from God himself: to mount a passionate campaign to save America from the Right.  SW
