Embarking on a national publicity tour to promote his new book, "Palestine Peace Not Apartheid," former US president Jimmy Carter ignites an international firestorm of controversy when he argues that only Israel's complete withdrawal from the occupied territories can bring lasting peace to the Middle East. Intimate, informative and altogether engrossing, Jimmy Carter Man from Plains is a candid portrait of a Nobel Prize-winning humanitarian and statesman whose compassion and steadfast sense of justice remains undiminished by time. Directed by Academy Award® winner Jonathan Demme (The Silence of the Lambs Best Director, 1991; Philadelphia, 1993).

Critics Consensus: Man From Plains is a fascinating look at the former president's recent endeavors.

It won't utterly rewrite Carter's history, and it won't convert anybody in this divided country, but Man from Plains will remind us that principle, humility and intelligence have a place in image-is-everything American politics.

Whether you're of the opinion that Carter is a misguided meddler or a worthy Nobel Peace Prize-winner (he won the award in 2002), Jonathan Demme's new documentary about the 39th president will provide you with plenty of ammunition.

Moviegoers might initially find the inside peek into a media book tour fascinating. But the tedium of trekking from hotel to car to interview and back to a waiting limo can wear down one's resolve.
