Saw this at the Traverse City Film Festival. Was really excited as it had Damian Lewis and was described as, "... comes this whip-smart, rapid-fire, political sizzler that delivers all the AARON SORKIN vibes you want." Yes, they actually used his name. And they delivered none of that.
The biggest problem with this movie was the story. Plain and simple. It bored me to tears. The music & cinematography were good as was Nina Dobrev, but everything else was tough to sit through.
I'm guessing the only reason this movie got into the festival was because director Ricky Tollman agreed to speak afterwords. We were told he left early lol. He knew it was bad, that's why he was a no-show.
I wouldn't have thought about writing a review until I overheard at least 9 other people complaining about the movie.
