Storyline

When Clinton's decided heterosexuality was placed under fire during the Starr Investigation and ensuing impeachment hearings, gay people strongly identified with the President's discomfort and outrage. Today, public ambitions inspire (or even require) lying, covering up, and shading personal truths for survival. Barney Frank - the first openly gay politician on Capitol Hill - understands a thing or two about survival on Capitol Hill. After overcoming his own sex scandal in the early 90's, Frank emerged as one of Clinton's most eloquent and sympathetic defenders during the impeachment hearings. Well-loved for his political wit, Barney Frank has emerged as one of the most popular Congressmen in the United States. Via interviews, news clippings, and exclusive footage shot during the Clinton impeachment hearings, "Let's Get Frank" is an intelligent and humorous look not only at life upon Capitol Hill, but also the dynamics of political scandal.

Superb Documentary
1 November 2006 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

A great presentation. Well constructed, excellently paced, and an overall unique look into a man of stellar abilities, credentials, and accomplishment during one of the most vile moments in the history of our democracy.

An excellent behind the scenes narrative on the workings of government. A phenomenal expose of the hatred at the foundation of the Republican attempt to remove from office a President for the most specious of reasons and predicated upon the most evil and sordid of political motivations.

Kudos to a great man, Barney Frank. For his many decades of work on behalf of all Americans. And for his life of excellence, honor, candor, and honesty.
