The American President
Aaron Sorkin is one of most gifted screenwriters. From movies like The Social Network, Molly's Game, and A Few Good Men (which was based on his play of the same name) to his crackling TV shows like Sports Night, The West Wing and The Newsroom he keeps us entertained and engaged in a way few modern screenwriters do. His 1995 screenplay for Rob Reiner's film THE AMERICAN PRESIDENT is a gem. Smart characters, witty dialogue, and wry observations make for a terrifically entertaining two hours. In the New York Times Janet Maslin raved "With great looks, a dandy supporting cast, a zinger-filled screenplay by Aaron Sorkin and Mr. Douglas twinkling merrily in the Oval Office, The American President is sunny enough to make the real Presidency pale by comparison." While Time Magazine said "As bustling and impassioned as the best Sturges and Capra movies." Sit back and enjoy Michael Douglas and Annette Bening in THE AMERICAN PRESIDENT streaming now on Showtime and CBS or rent it for a modest fee from what we should start calling "The Usual Suspects:" Amazon, YouTube, GooglePlay, Apple, Vudu and others HERE. This is what leadership looks like.
