FOLLOW THE LEADER is “a real-life coming-of-age story for political junkies” (Education Week) that’s “like Michael Apted’s 7 Up series” (Filmmaker Magazine). The film charts the lives of sixteen-year-old, high school class presidents Ben (The Loyalist), D.J. (The Believer) and Nick (The Idealist), all initially young conservatives who plan to continue leading their peers as President someday. Over three life-changing years, they split into Republican, Democratic and Independent camps as each reconsiders his lofty ambitions. Growing up at a critical moment for America as well, their lives also “force us to all rethink our assumptions about tomorrow’s leaders, the impact of 9/11 on them, and their political views of the millennial generation” (Christian Science Monitor). As shocking as “Jesus Camp,” as revealing as “American Teen,” and as funny as “Spellbound,” FOLLOW THE LEADER is the story of what change means for three young leaders who feel destined to lead the world.
