I dunno if it's an old saying I heard in politics someplace -or- the
movie "The Untouchables"-?? LOL -something about being sure to bring a
gun to a knife fight- something like that-??
Rob Lowe returns to "West Wing" territory in this story of a political strategist juggling three clients who begins to question whether or not to take the high road as the ugly side of his work starts to haunt him. I definitely enjoyed this movie- for it's look at the nasty underworld of politics, and the performances of it's leads- especially Lowe and Carrie- Anne Moss. She plays a doctor who decides to run for office, and ends up becoming a celebrity/hero. "West Wing" co-star, Richard Schiff, re-teams with his old co-star, along with Julie Bowen, Jamie Chung, Saffron Burrows, Jennifer Morrison ("House") and Eric McCormack ("Will and Grace").

If a political candidate is personally flawed, but stands to make a positive difference in millions of lives, would you help him win? That question looms over the life of "true believer" Paul Turner (Rob Lowe), a savvy strategist sharply maneuvering politicians out of scandal and into public office. With the help of a bright young assistant (Jamie Chung) and a seedy operative (Richard Schiff), Turner spins every news cycle and a shrewd reporter (Julie Bowen) on behalf of his clients: a philandering Kentucky governor (Eric McCormick), a blackmailed California senator (David Harbour), and an idealistic doctor turned gubernatorial candidate (Carrie-Anne Moss). When the ugly side of Turner's work begins to haunt him, he learns that even in the bloodiest of battles, sometimes you have to fight clean.
