Game Change

Not nearly as good as the book, but vote Moore for the Emmy.


Drama

Rod Lott
Nearly every scene of HBO's telefilm Game Change, I recall from John Heilemann and Mark Halperin's excellent nonfiction book of the same thing. But the movie directed by Jay Roach (of the Austin Powers and Meet the Parents franchises) only tells half — maybe even one-quarter — of the story, ignoring the 2008 presidential-campaign narratives of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and John Edwards for the one it finds most compelling: that of Sarah Palin and John McCain, and not the other way around.
