There’s optimism and can-do spirit outside Washington: ‘Our Towns’ documentary shows it

Albert Hunt’s April 14, 2021 review in The Hill begins, “America, viewed through the prism of Washington and national politics, is a bitterly polarized country.” But, he goes on, “There is a different America, one that Deb and Jim Fallows discovered in four years flying, in their small plane, around the country. It’s one imbued with a sense of community, an appreciation for the quality of life, a willingness to change and innovate, and to directly confront real problems.”

Describing the Fallowses as “national journalistic treasures,” the documentary, he concludes “makes you feel good about America.”
