Boasting a phenomenal cast headed by Josh Brolin as 'Dubya' himself, with James Cromwell, thandie Newton, Richard Dreyfuss, Toby Jones, Scott Glenn and Ioan Gruffudd as Tony Blair, W. is the acclaimed, true life tragicomedy of the most 'misunderestimated' man in the world. Directed by three times Oscar winner oliver Stone, the king of controversial political biopics examines his third American President after JFK and Nixon. Arguably 'Dubya' is the most fascinating subject matter of the lot. A Yale graduate, a transplanted son of Texas, a one-time drunk and a religious convert: how did this improbable character transform himself from reprobate and well-known black sheep of his esteemed family into leader of the Free World? W. follows Bush Jr.'s journey to The White House and in the process reveals the struggles, achievements and malapropisms of the man who would become the 43rd President of the United States of America... all the while trying to escape the shadow of his 'Poppy', George Bush Senior. Absolutely riveting viewing.
