Somewhere between being a new subscriber to Netflix and being a political science major in college I have been watching a lot of movies with a political theme recently. Most recently it was The Special Relationship this movie describes itself as
“A dramatization that traces former U.K. prime minister Tony Blair’s relationships with Bill Clinton and George W. Bush.”
In all reality that description is only half right, it does a great job of showing the unique and sometimes odd relationship between Clinton and Blair but we don’t even see GWB until about 10min before the end of the movie. All of the characters seemed true to their parts and even the “private” conversations seemed very believable. One of the most interesting parts of this movie is the views of First Lady Hillary Clinton and Cherie Blair. It was interesting to see the effects of the Clinton sex scandal and other trials and tribulations of the Clinton administration on the Blair administration.
