2008 | 'Recount'( Carolyn Cole / Los Angeles Times )
Butterfly ballots and hanging chads, these are what presidents are made of. "Recount" follows Denis Leary, left, Laura Dern, center, and Kevin Spacey, right, as they navigate the 2000 presidential election that pitted then-Texas Gov. George W. Bush against then-Vice President Al Gore. Voter error resulted in the hotly contested election that ended in the hands of the Supreme Court.
Campaign lesson learned: Every vote counts, so long as it's counted.
