It’s not Hollywood in the heartland. Still, Sarah Palin watchers sat upright with the news that “The Undefeated,” a full-length feature film about the former Alaska governor will make its debut next month in Iowa. The project was financed and produced by conservative filmmaker Stephen Bannon.
“The film is poised to serve as a galvanizing prelude to Palin’s prospective presidential campaign — an unconventional reintroduction to the nation that she and her political team have spent months eagerly anticipating, even as Beltway Republicans have largely concluded that she won’t run,” observes Real Politics national politics writer Scott Conroy.
“The film will also appeal to staunch Palin supporters who have long celebrated her biting rhetoric and conservative populism yet know little about her record in Alaska and have perhaps written her off as presidential material,” Mr. Conroy adds.
