The search for evangelicals in the heartland

HBO film has them talking about subjects that'll surprise you

January 25, 2007|By David Zurawik | David Zurawik,sun television critic

Documentary filmmaker Alexandra Pelosi is back on the road for HBO again, and this time her hand-held camera is trained on Christian evangelicals.

The result, Friends of God, isn't as skillfully focused as Pelosi's Emmy Award-winning Journeys with George, a look at life on the press plane of George W. Bush during the 2000 presidential campaign. But the filmmaker, the daughter of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, nevertheless delivers an engaging and occasionally insightful exploration of a group that numbers 50 million Americans by the most conservative estimates.

On TV Friends of God: A Road Trip with Alexandra Pelosi premieres at 9 tonight on HBO.
