The film takes on presidential candidate Donald Trump and is based on a one-man show Moore recently tried to stage in Ohio. Says the film’s synopsis, “See the film Ohio Republicans tried to shut down. Oscar-winner Michael Moore dives right into hostile territory with his daring and hilarious one-man show, deep in the heart of TrumpLand in the weeks before the 2016 election.”

Of course Moore is no stranger to politics or controversy. He won an Oscar for taking on American gun culture in “Bowling for Columbine” (2002), and in his acceptance speech blasted President George W. Bush‘s administration for leading the country to war in Iraq. Then he took on Bush again with his documentary “Fahrenheit 9/11” (2004), addressed the US health care system in “Sicko” (2007), and most recently sought solutions for American social and political problems in “Where to Invade Next” (2015).
