Told in broken chronology, W. focuses on Bush’s post-9/11 path to waging a “preventive war” in Iraq despite no hard evidence of weapons of mass destruction to justify it. The major players in W’s administration--Rove, Colin Powell (Jeffrey Wright), Condoleeza Rice (Thandie Newton), and especially Dick Cheney (Richard Dreyfuss)--all participate in closed meetings that look and sound like every investigative account by the New York Times or Bob Woodward about the administration’s inner workings leading up to the war. Much of this is quite fascinating if a little weird (Newton’s performance is indeed strange), but the drama is often powerful, particularly around Powell’s resistance to the rising tide for a supposedly slam-dunk war. A number of the film’s key performances, besides Brolin’s, are very strong, especially Cromwell, Jones, Wright, Dreyfuss and Bruce McGill as George Tenet. --Tom Keogh

Frankly, Bush's life, rather like his presidency some would argue, is rather dull.
It is an interesting and believable angle, but the film's narrow focus leaves parts of Bush's story glaringly absent.
Upon just a surface-level viewing of the film, one might think that, objectivity-wise, it isn't really too bad.
Interesting story. A point of view that we don't always get to see of public figures.Published 16 days ago by Peter Dreis
I was never a "W" fan, for many reasons. This movie tells a tale of some of this person's past.Published 17 days ago by NYB
You look at George W. Bush early life. You would wonder how did he become President. His dad helped him out lots of trouble. It was a good movie to me.Published 1 month ago by keith
