New DVD: The War Room

May 9, 2012

We recently added The War Room to the DBRL collection. The 1993 film was recently re-released by Criterion as a two disc set and currently has a rating of 95% from critics at Rotten Tomatoes. Here’s a synopsis from our catalog:

The 1992 presidential election was a triumph not only for Bill Clinton but also for the new breed of strategists who guided him to the White House and changed the face of politics in the process. For this thrilling, behind-closed-doors account of that campaign, the filmmakers closely followed the brainstorming and bull sessions of Clinton’s crack team of consultants. Fleet-footed and entertaining, this is a vivid document of a political moment whose truths still ring in our ears.

Check out the film trailer or the official film site for more info. The directors of this film also directed the documentaries Down from the Mountain (2000) and Kings of Pastry (2011).
