Rating of

HBO gets another knockout of a movie in Recount, in which the month long recount process between two teams of lawyers representing Bush and Gore battle it out over votes in Florida. Brilliantly cast with great performances by Kevin Spacey and Tom Wilkinson (who absolutely nails James Baker's arrogance), but it's Laura Dern as the unqualified and deluded Katherine Harris who steals the show with her spot-on impersonation. This is a good film, unfortunately, you have to sit and watch it all unfold again, as Bush's team of lawyers successfully lobbies the Supreme Court to ignore thousands of votes and appoint Bush president. If you can stomach that, you should be to still enjoy Recount.
