HBO ‘Game Change’ Trailer: Julianne Moore As Sarah Palin
Julianne Moore stars as Sarah Palin and Ed Harris stars as John McCain in the HBO film, Game Change, which will premiere on Saturday, March, 10th at 9pm on HBO.
Based on the trailer alone, I’m not sure what to make of this movie. I will definitely watch it, but I think it has the potential to overplay events that are still fresh in most people’s minds, at least those paying attention to politics. I feel the Republican side of the 2008 presidential race was in reality full of drama and nonsense and I’m concerned this movie will add unnecessary embellishment, but this is total conjecture on my part.
Game Change tells the story of the McCain 2008 presidential campaign and is based on the book by the same name by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin. Viewing the trailer, the movie looks to be less than kind to Sarah Palin.
