"Sharp, literate, outstanding and funny"
John Hurt stars as controversial, real life, Conservative MP, Alan Clark, a man who sees everything slightly differently from everybody else. A man who schemes and dreams of high office despite a succession of gaffes, scandals (drink, women, ill chosen remarks) and self doubts.
Whilst in the corridors of power, Alan Clark offers his own inimitable insight to leading Tory colleagues during the Thatcher years.
This is very entertaining and many a time the Alan Clark interpretation of events will make you laugh. Amazingly this is 'a true to life' recollection of his diaries, which leaves you a little open mouthed, but it is all good stuff.
