RECOUNT vividly captures an historic moment in America, as well as a reality that can only be appreciated in retrospect - that history is often written by the smallest of decisions, the quietest of conversations and the narrowest of margins. Director Jay Roach presents Danny Strong's meticulously researched script in the great tradition of classic films like ALL THE PRESIDENT'S MEN - heart-pounding thrillers with endings well-known. Kevin Spacey, Denis Leary, Laura Dern and Tom Wilkinson lead a flawless acting ensemble, reminding us that truth - especially in politics - can be stranger than fiction.
