Street Fight

Documentary following upstart Rhodes scholar Cory Booker's 2002 bid to unseat Sharpe James, the entrenched mayor of Newark, N.J., in a campaign that harkens back to old-fashioned, rough-and-tumble politics. Nominated for the Best Documentary Feature Oscar. In Newark, "elections are won and lost in the streets," says filmmaker Marshall Curry, who interviews a car-wash owner who says the city shut his business down because he backs Booker. Curry is also seen being intimidated at James rallies.
