Rolling Stone - 06/12/2008 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Kevin Spacey is in top form....And Denis Leary makes every line ring bitterly funny and true....RECOUNT is exciting entertainment..."
An all-star cast heads this gripping look at the 2000 presidential election and its aftermath. Hanging chads, uncounted votes, and a controversial Supreme Court decision elected President George W. Bush in one of the most contested elections in American history. By turns hilarious and tragic, RECOUNT follows the central players on both sides of the aisle--including Al Gore's former Chief of Staff, Ron Klaine (Kevin Spacey); Republican advisor James Baker (Tom Wilkinson); and Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris (Laura Dern)--as they vie to determine the next President of the United States. Using real-life footage and actual dialogue, this political drama offers an illuminating recount of one of the defining moments of the 21st century.
