Follow the Leader is a coming of age story about three teenage boys, each with the dream of becoming President of United States. Director Jonathan Goodman Levitt followed these focused young men, born as Reagan left office and the Berlin Wall fell, for three years, from high school though Election Night 2008. These upper-middle class, conservative kids, each living in traditional “all-American” towns, are enthralled by politics. They grew up shaped by 9/11 which forever altered their post-Reagan childhood beliefs that America was invincible.
