Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez! The 28-year-old U.S. Representative is taking each case by storm in her documentary, Knock Down The House. She stars alongside two other people in “Knock Down The House” directed by Rachel Lear. The Netflix documentary is a brave look into how she and other candidates took on Democratic officials during the electoral sea change of 2018.
It seemed like Ocasio’s opponent Joe Crowley never saw her coming. He never anticipated the research and preparation Ocasio would’ve had on her side when coming face-to-face with the petite loud woman in front of him.
The documentary follows Ocasio and the three others, all or nothing female candidates, Cori Bush, and Paula Jean Swearengin at the beginning of the primary elections for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. Ocasio seemed to be slaying dragons and teaching lessons as she campaigned, collected signatures, and raised money just to be on the ballot.
The movie almost served as a superhero origin story or even an inspirational movie of never giving up on your dreams and whatever you set forth to complete. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez allowed us to believe in what America could have always been and that’s beautiful, diverse and a place to be proud of.
Allow yourself to be changed by the amazing documentary out now on Netflix Knock Down The House.
