Conventioneers is a 2005 romantic comedy about two lovers who meet, argue and eventually struggle to rekindle their relationship, set against the backdrop of the 2004 Republican National Convention in New York City. Davis Massey (Matthew Mabe) is a conservative delegate from Texas in town for the convention. While there he calls up an old classmate from Dartmouth, Lea Jones (Woodwyn Koons), to meet for a lunch date. The two catch up on old times and romantic sparks start to fly until Lea, a committed liberal planning to protest the convention, finds out that David is a staunch Republican. Over drinks, however, the two discover that anger is a pretty potent aphrodisiac. Meanwhile, a liberal sign-language interpreter, Dylan Murtaugh (Alek Friedman), plots his own revenge by trying to sabotage the acceptance speech of President George W. Bush. Conventioneers was actually filmed at the 2004 Republican National Convention at Madison Square Garden, and was co-written and directed by Mora Stephens.
