Director: Richard Loncraine
Never underestimate the politics of friendship.
Michael Sheen reprises his role as ex-British PM Tony Blair in the third film in writer Peter Morgan's trilogy (after The Deal and The Queen). The film traces the special relationship between the USA and Britain, in the form of the friendship between Blair and Bill Clinton (played by Dennis Quaid).
The power balance between the two shifts throughout the film, beginning before Blair's ascension to the position of prime minister and ending as Clinton leaves office. The history covered includes the British Labour party's adoption of Democrat values, Clinton's infamous relationship with Monica Lewinski and Blair's growing resolve to get results in Kosovo. A version of contemporary history, behind closed doors, up close and personal.
