Although it's never going to be the greastest political film ever made it's a great insight into Bill Clinton's run for the Whitehouse and the psyche of the man. I should say it's not explicity linked to Clinton at any stage but the similarities are too great to be anyone else.
With fine acting all round (particularly Travolta and Thompson) it is really quite a believable exploration of the man that helps understand the character of his 8 years as President. I found Travolta's portrayal, constantly switching between personas depending on the audience, engrossing - the Southern Governer singing "You Are My Sunshine" to the Champion of the working man rounding up donations from industrialists.
Brilliant stuff! Definitely worth watching, especially if you like the West Wing.
