The Oath (DVD)
|Availability:||On Order 7 copies|
SummaryWhen Chris, a high-strung 24-hour progressive news junkie, and his more levelheaded wife Kai learn that citizens are being asked to sign a loyalty oath to the President, their reaction is disbelief, followed by idealistic refusal. But as the Thanksgiving deadline to sign approaches, the combination of sparring relatives, Chris's own agitation and the unexpected arrival of two government agents sends an already tense holiday dinner gathering completely off the rails.
"The laughs laced with a sigh as we watch arguments play out that have brought us to a collective national state of exhaustion and despair."--Entertainment Weekly
"Nothing spoils a family gathering quite like politics, and no movie has captured the way such debates can turn ugly quite like Ike Barinholtz's 'The Oath'..."--Variety
"A blistering political satire that may rip the bandage and the scab, as well as a lot of the skin, off a political wound that has barely had time to heal."--Washington Post
