Screenwriter Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon, The Queen) explores the complex relationship that developed between former American President Bill Clinton and former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Tony Blair as the two progressive statesmen strived to unite their countries toward a common goal. The growing bond between President Clinton and Prime Minister Blair is later solidified by the fact that their wives, Hillary Clinton and Cherie Blair, seem to have just as much in common as their powerful husbands. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Pretty simple movie about two political friends. Great performance by Martin Sheen as Tony Blair, Dennis Quaid was a little too over the top as Bill Clinton sometimes, but overall great potrayals. Story isn't anything too great, and if you dont like dialogue-heavy films, staw away. All in all, I enjoyed it!
Michael Sheen is outstanding in everything he does and this is no exception. Dennis Quaid does a good job as Bill Clinton, but sometimes he seems a little off. I was impressed with Hope Davis as an intelligent, yet likeable Hillary Clinton.
Overall it's a very fast-moving and entertaining film. Tony Blair's relationship with Clinton is basically the story. Although Blair is associated with George W. Bush because of 9/11, he actually developed the foundation of his politics with Clinton. The end result is Blair's legacy might have been less damaged if he hadn't sided with George W. Bush so much.
Interesting look into the relationship between Tony Blair and Bill Clinton, during the highs and lows of their respective terms. The cast is terrific and is worth a watch, especially if you liked such films as "The Queen" and "W."
