A down-and-dirty musical set in the world of working-class New York, tells a story of a husband's journey into infidelity and redemption when he must choose between his seductive mistress and his beleaguered wife.
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. When the influent Judge Irwin supports a group of politicians in their request of impeachment, Stark assigns Jack to find some dirtiness along the life of Irwin, leading to a tragedy in the end.

Remember, it is not I who have won, but you. Your will is my strength, and your need is my justice, and I shall live in your right and your will. And if any man tries to stop me from fulfilling that right and that will, I'll break him. I'll break him with my bare hands, for I have the strength of many.

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.
