"The Passion of the Christ" (search) was one of the top-grossing films of 2004, yet it has been totally ignored by the Golden Globes and doesn't prominently appear in most mainstream critics "Best of 2004" lists either. Instead, for its "Best Film" nominees, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association chose to honor a movie about a kindly abortionist ("Vera Drake"), a sex researcher ("Kinsey") and euthanasia ("The Sea Inside.")
No wonder then that mainstream America feels totally out of touch with Hollywood. And what about the producers, directors, actors and writers with conservative beliefs who live and work in the belly of the beast? During the recent national elections, being a conservative in Hollywood was like being a communist during the McCarthy hearings. Now, however, the braver ones are fighting back. Perhaps emboldened by the election of Governor Schwarzenegger (search) and President Bush's reelection, conservatives now have their own film festivals and they can give as good as they get: Young movie maker, Evan Maloney is already being called a "Conservative Michael Moore" as he shadows the left wing icon with his microphone and video camera.
This weekend, join host John Gibson as FOX News uncovers a side of Tinsel Town you probably never knew existed.
Using film clips and behind-the-scenes interviews with actors, producers and directors, "Hollywood vs. America" reveals how, frame-by-frame conservative filmmakers are taking back an industry that used to be the envy of the world.
