Before the Tea Party movement had a name, author Thomas Frank's controversial New York Times bestselling book "What's the Matter with Kansas? How Conservatives Won the Heart of America" explored the rise of conservatism in his home state of Kansas and exposed the contradictions of the movement. Based on Frank's book, director Joe Winston's critically acclaimed feature length documentary WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH KANSAS? similarly deals with the ascendancy of conservatism and how conservative political strategists won the hearts and minds of Americans, a movement now more visible and very much in effect all across America today. The film adaptation, with its vivid characters and their unforgettable stories, sheds light on the national debate over who the conservatives are, where they come from, and why they continue to wield influence.
