Mighty Ira shows how a principled man can make all the difference. Ira Glasser looked a Holocaust survivor in the eyes as he told him he will fight for the right of a Neo-Nazi group to exercise their First Amendment rights. Glasser is a man to admire because he chooses to do what he believes is right in an honest, compassionate, and uncompromising manner. The story, pacing, and cinematography are all well-done. The film does not try to be anything other that it is-a story about a man who believes in the ideals of liberty and navigates his way through a messy world in order to live up to them.
Ira is one of America's unsung champions of civil rights and liberties. As his generation retires from the barricades, Ira reminisces on his life at the forefront of defending the rights of all Americans.
