Another movie to make you feel sorry for the current state of politics.

What's Good: Solid if not spectacular performances, interesting story derived from actual events, production really helps transport you to the 1980's, film provides different perspectives on a singular event, draws comparisons to our current political environment, effective pacing keeps the audience interested.

What's Bad: Somewhat compromised historical accuracy for the sake of cinematic effect, doesn't do a good job of characterizing the main character, leaves questions of motivation open-ended, hectic presentation can be overwhelming, not written well enough for its message to come across without some doubt.
