A recommendation for "Swing Vote"

Just got this email from a dear friend of mine and thought I'd pass it along.

Dear friends,
Today my husband and I went to the movie, "Swing Vote". We expected to see Kevin Costner, Kelsey Grammer and Dennis Hopper, and we expected the move to be funny - and it was. But we didn't expect that the movie would hit so close to home. In the movie little Madeline Carroll plays a fifth-grader who tries to get her dad, a single parent with serious problems, to vote for president. Lot of laughs and lots of pathos, but we are the parents of a single mom - who is raising three children (one a fifth-grader) with no child support in a small town in the Ohio rust belt - and "Swing Vote" is the story of our daughter and her children, and so many other families across the country. Please go see this movie, and recommend it to someone who isn't likely to vote in November!

I may have to check this out.
