ANN RICHARDS' TEXAS is a timely documentary about the life and lessons of the late great governor Ann Richards. A feisty, straight-talking West Texas girl, Ann Richards was a hippie housewife who traded late nights with Willie Nelson and the progressive Austin music scene for a beehive hairdo, the Governor's Mansion, and battles with special interests. Extensive interviews with politicians (Clinton, Pelosi), journalists (Brokaw, Rather), and friends (Tomlin, Nelson) provide a detailed look into the life and history of one of the most fascinating public figures in the history of American politics.
