Peter and Tim are both law students looking to get into the battleground of politics in Washington, but they both have different ideals and ethics. Tim wants to pursue a career in justice, but Peter is determined to be a big political power broker any way he can, even if that means bending the rules. As their careers push them towards political opposites, their friendship must constantly adapt to the new situation.Written by

When Peter calls Tim (supposedly from NYC) to say he is back in town, Tim invites him to the Stiles New Years Eve party. Tim gives him directions starting in New York, but Peter already said he had to see his aunt and uncle in Hartford, CT first. Tim's directions should have started from there. See more »

"True Colors" tells of two male law school student who are best friends with contrasting integrity which leads to conflict. Spader plays straight man to Cusack's fast-track-to-success character who uses manipulation and ruthlessness on his way to a congressional seat. This yuppie-flavored flick is obvious in the way it presents it's "Ethics 101" plot but the story moves quickly and is sufficiently interesting to make it worth a look. An okay diversion for channel surfers interested in a film about two men from opposite sides of the tracks with enduring friendship fraught with conflict and moral issues.
