If last night's debate got you thinking about VP hopeful Paul Ryan, you should make a plan to see As Goes Janesville, which profiles how his hometown struggled with the 2008 closing of a General Motors factory that employed most of the town for almost 100 years. The documentary will be screened tomorrow afternoon as part of the Chicago International Film Fest.
