Movies have the ability to make us feel. They make us want to believe, be inspired, and live vicariously through the stories we see on screen. It is for this reason we often feel an emotional connection to films. Politics affects our lives in a variety of ways, so it is natural that filmmakers are drawn to stories about the lives of those who run the world.
