“A genuine David vs. Goliath battle. A rich story of whether grassroots democracy, in the form of citizens and local government, can triumph over entrenched, powerful interests like the nuclear energy industry. Through a story with many twists and turns, Leppzer keeps the film’s focus on the individuals caught up in the drama.”?— Steve Pfarrer, DAILY HAMPSHIRE GAZETTE
“A chronicle of a political drama.” — Jeff Potter, THE COMMONS
“Riveting.” — Richie Davis, THE RECORDER
