PARK CITY, Utah -- Has ever a little indie film faced a greater hurdle?
Imagine this sales pitch: Babe, it's a movie about global warming.
Starring Al Gore. Doing a slide show. With charts. About "soil evaporation."

Improbable? Perhaps. So it's all the more amazing that "An Inconvenient
Truth" had its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on Tuesday
night before an enthusiastic audience that gave the former vice president
his movie a big standing O.

Among the film's lessons: Earth's glaciers are melting, the polar bears
are screwed, each year sets new heat records. Al Gore sometimes flies coach.
He also schleps his own bags.
