Grassroots-UK-PosterGrassroots hits cinemas next Friday 9th November and if you’re eager to see more from the movie, fear not as we have this exclusive clip to share with the world! Grassroots is directed by Stephen Gyllenhaal and stars Jason Biggs of American Pie fame and Joel David Moore who you’ll know as the tall chap in Avatar! It’s a really fun movie which I think you’re going to really enjoy and keep your eyes peeled for my interview with Jason and Stephen which goes lives next week.

The film also stars Cobie Smulders, Christopher McDonald, Cedric The Entertainer, Tom Arnold.

It’s 2001, before Twitter, before the flash mob and before Obama. A political unknown named Grant Cogswell (Joel David Moore) decides he must take down Seattle City Councilman Richard McIver (Cedric the Entertainer). Grant has only one dream, but it’s a big one: an elegant monorail gliding silently above the city’s wet streets, with only a tiny footprint–“like a kids’ lemonade stand!”–on the ground. He is apoplectic with rage over McIver’s mass transit proposal: a ground rail train he thinks will destroy lower class neighborhoods, wreak environmental harm on the local salmon population, and destroy the city. Grant has no campaign contributors, a tendency toward outbursts of profanity, and a snowball’s chance in hell–until he lures recently fired alternative-weekly reporter Phil Campbell (Jason Biggs) to run his campaign. Phil may be a political neophyte, but he has the tact that Grant lacks and a ‘what- the-hell-I-haven’t-got-anything-better-to-do’ attitude… until he recruits an army of wild-eyed young volunteers to back their unlikely crusade, and the impossible begins to happen.
