D.A. Pennebaker and Chris Hedgus direct a behind-the-scenes documentary about the 1992 Clinton for President campaign, mostly following the spin doctors of the movement: the outspoken campaign manager James Carville and softer-spoken but brilliant director of communications George Stephanopoulos.
Campaign lesson learned: Political campaigning is sometimes petty and very much manipulative, but a lot of the steps taken to win require heart and an uncanny gift for presentation.
