Add to Watchlist

Released to the public in January, 1999 The War Room grossed over $900,000 in the United alone. This reality based film documentary exploits Bill Clinton's presidential election, and those surrounding and running the campaign. Unfortunately, Bill Clinton himself, is very rarely seen in the movie. James Carville and George Stephanopoulos are what a good percentage of what the movie focuses on. George and James' created a very candid, and adventurous campaign. James and George ran the campaign, made public speeches, and answered phone calls, etc.(just to name a few job titles they held). These two men essentially changed the way campaigns are won and ran today.

Critics review this movie to be both fascinating and timeless. Bill Clinton's life was put on display for the whole World to view, judge, and vote on his character. His personal relationship with his family, relationships within his co workers, and his future ideas for where America was headed are what this movie depicted. The War Room shines a realistic light on the Clinton election. The War Room also conveys how much needed changes had to be acknowledged and implemented.

James Carville and George Stephanopoulos worked hard to get the word out to folks. They promoted the rise of good employment, and the possibility that our children will go to better and safer schools, and taxes won't rise, if Bill Clinton is elected. They were recognized for their hard work in this campaign. Many people didn't think this come back kid would actually win that election and become president of the United States of America. His dedication was to do right by Americans. This movie also has some hilarious scenes, which is a good touch for such a political, sobering type of subject matter. You will get to see real footage of George and James' campaign trail streak. They speak their minds bluntly and believed in making America a better place for a better tomorrow.
