Trivia

Much of the plot is reportedly derived from the book "The Rivals" by James Naughtie. See more »

Goofs

Despite being set in the 1980s and early 1990s, no attempt has been made to disguise the scenes shot in Central London, so modern cars and buses (as of 2003) are regularly seen behind the characters. See more »

Excellent and compelling
23 November 2003 | by (Cambridge, England) – See all my reviews

By providing us not only with the political faces of these two great men but with their flawed human underbellies, the director drags us into the heart of the clash - the stylistic differences between Bed and Breakfast (Blair and Brown). What a performance.. Watch the news afterward and you won't know which program was the real one. 10/10
