Aging screenwriter Felix Bonhoeffer has lived his life in two states of existence: in reality and his own interior world. While working on a murder mystery script, and unaware that his brain is on the verge of implosion, Felix is baffled when his characters start to appear in his life, and vice versa.
In the 50's, in Louisiana, the smart populist, manipulative and wolf hick Willie Stark is elected governor with the support of the lower social classes. He joins a team composed of his bodyguard and friend Sugar Boy; the journalist from an aristocratic family Jack Burden; the lobbyist Tiny Duffy; and his mistress Sadie Burke, to face the opposition of the upper classes.

To find something, anything, a great truth or a lost pair of glasses, you must first believe there would be some advantage in finding it. I found something a long time ago, and have held on to it for grim death ever since. I owe my success in life to it; it put me where I am today. This principle: what you don't know, won't hurt you. They called it idealism in a book I read.

I was fortunate enough to catch the premiere of this movie and I am endlessly pleased that I did so.
There have been comments about the miscasting, but from what I have seen, this is mostly relating the movie to the original. All of the people that I talked to said that they liked it and that the actors portrayed the people really well. These comments came from natives of New Orleans.
The movie itself is gripping throughout most of the some 2 hours. The visual and auditory effects do a great deal to enhance the story. It is evident that the actors put a lot of passion into their roles and the fact that they returned to New Orleans for the premiere shows that a part of them went into the movie.
All in all, the cast is great, the sound is great, the movie is great.
