With the current race steaming ahead, it’s the perfect time to revisit this feature-length drama about the 2008 US presidential campaign and Sarah Palin’s role in it. Julianne Moore makes an uncanny transformation into the Alaska governor and mum of five, while Ed Harris and Woody Harrelson are exceptional as Senator John McCain and chief strategist Steve Schmidt. While McCain and Palin rubbished the film’s credibility, Schmidt said it was a ‘very accurate’ depiction. Either way, it’s a fantastic political and personal narrative.
