Sorkin has a lot to learn about directing, but once again brilliantly shows his writing prowess
I saw this film at TIFF in Sept, and it is extremely entertaining. While Aaron Sorkin, in his directorial debut shows he still has a lot to learn about directing, his story (to no surprise) is full of life, wit, and snappy dialogue. He will undoubtedly be nominated for another Oscar this year.
