Try to see this movie. It's a very good one.
29 August 2002 | by (Constanta, Romania) – See all my reviews

A great movie about how tiny things in private life can influence somebody's public life. Chirstine Lahti plays the role of the daughter of a senator that is nominated for the post of minister of health. On a television talk show it is revealed that in the past she misplaced a jury citation and did not announce anybody about it. A mEdia Trial starts from this thing, and probably every clitch in American governmental system is shown here. Try to see this movie. It's a very good one. 8/10
