'Can Mr. Smith Still Get to Washington Anymore?'

Directed by Frank Popper, this documentary follows the 2004 Missouri Democratic primary to replace retiring 28-year veteran and former House Majority Leader Dick Gephardt. It is told from inside the campaign of Jeff Smith, a 29-year old part-time political science instructor at Washington University, and asks the question of if it is still possible in America to elect a candidate who is not a part of the existing political establishment.
