Parents Need to Know

Is It Any Good?
Most kids probably won't be interested thanks to the talky nature of it, but fans of good docudramas and political buffs will definitely find it worth watching. This TV movie offers a dramatic interpretation of the way the British prime minister negotiated his relationship with President Clinton to strengthen his domestic and international political standing. It also highlights some of the major problems this sometimes-controversial relationship created, and offers some explanation for the loyal political alliance the two charismatic leaders enjoyed during the 1990s. While one may question the accuracy of some of the more intimate scenes featured here, the movie clearly relies on enough factual information and archived news footage to create a strong sense of reality throughout.
