In 1968 America, in a moment of extreme partisanship, the cunningly conservative William F. Buckley Jr. (played by David Harewood of Homeland), and the unruly liberal Gore Vidal (Zachary Quinto, Star Trek) began their nightly, televised debates in the lead up to a Presidential election. As they heighten their attacks, and as the discourse outside of the studio turns ugly, the once-sedate TV news becomes supercharged with animosity and rage: a new normal. Jeremy Herrin (All My Sons) directs this blistering political thriller, filmed live from the Young Vic in London’s West End. (U.K., 2023, 180m with intermission)
