"[A] pungent, spirited, and quietly devastating 'prequel' to THE QUEEN....It's played out with terrific aplomb."
Directed by Stephen Frears (DIRTY PRETTY THINGS), this political drama chronicles the early career of Tony Blair, when, as a Member of Parliament, he supposedly struck a deal with colleague Gordon Brown to obtain leadership of the Labour party. Michael Sheen portrays Blair--a role he would later reprise in Frears's Academy Award-winning movie THE QUEEN--while David Morrissey (DERAILED) stars as Brown.
