The film also fails to take into account the many other factors in play during the 2008 election, narrowing events down to one all-encompassing Mormon-based explanation. 8 means well, but is too blinded by its own biases to do its cause justice.
From the hard facts of the church's PR wrangling and shady financial reporting, to the human fallout of their treatment of gays both inside and outside their flock, the filmmakers hammer hard on the Mormon church.
