Charles Dutton is one of our finest actors and he has now branched out to direct his first theatrical release "The Obama Effect." It's debuting in AMC theaters across the country this weekend. There's not one near me, but if you have a chance to see it, I think it will be be entertainment gamble worth taking.
Here's the description from the website
A serious health scare ignites John Thomas, an insurance salesman in his 50’s (played by writer/director Charles S. Dutton) to take a closer look at his life. Motivated by a misguided obsession with getting Barack Obama elected, John takes an overwhelming involvement in the Presidential campaign. While John becomes obsessed with the ideal of change that Obama represents for Americans, he has in turn neglected to create positive change in his own life, particularly with regard to his health and familial relationships.
