The producers, directors and editors did a really good job of not only letting Monica present her side of the story (which was not readily available during the scandal), but in placing Monica's experience within the context of what was taking place. The cinematography and editing was very well done and provided a great deal of empathy and insight into her state of mind while being the butt of the country's jokes. There were some good questions asked about responsibility, both hers and Clinton's, and it leaves you with questions about Andy Blieler's motivations. Should Blieler have been questioned more about his part in having an affair with a teenage student? Why was he let off so easy? I wish HBO would re-run this and that they would release this on DVD. Note to filmmakers and Monica: I think there is a market for this side of the story. Certainly academics would and should be interested in sharing this with their students. This program gives a side to the madness of the whole scandal that as media consumers really had not seen before nor had most of us considered. Well done!
