Summary: When Britain's Secretary Of State For International Development Simon Foster states, in the midst of a radio interview, that a war in the Middle East in 'unforeseeable,' it doesn't follow his government's 'line' on events. The problem is that war is not unforeseeable, what with America itching to invade somewhere in the Middle East and the British government loyally following. Unfortunately, Foster suspects nothing about the firestorm to follow. By the next day, Foster is the target of the Prime Minister's director of communications Malcolm Tucker, and the focus of attention for anti-war American diplomat Karen Clarke. After US General George Miller and State Department hawk Linton Barwick jump into the mix, Foster's mountain of an ill-chosen remark turns into a series of festering molehills. In the end, one thing is clear: grave matters involving global power cannot be separated from the pettiness of democratic governance, which is impelled by careerism, vanity, moral compromise and--at least in London--by ear-singeing profanity.
Review: A film for those who must consume politics with a healthy dose of satire, politicians and generals from both sides of the Pond try to out position each other on the question of whether their respective countries should go to war with Iraq. This film takes glee in its depictions of those who run the government, showing off that for most integrity doesn’t matter as long as you make it through the rat race to the winning side.
