NYC PREMIERE An unexpected consequence of the 2008 presidential election, the Tea Party emerged as an ostensibly grassroots conservative political movement focused on limiting government and a political force with which to be reckoned, as demonstrated by the midterm elections. With restraint and candor, Town Hall takes an impartial but pointed look at two impassioned Pennsylvania Tea Party activists in the lead-up to the 2012 election, determined to restore their version of a theoretically “lost” America, but faced with complicated, if not contradictory, decisions.
