Julianne Moore is frighteningly convincing as failed vp candidate Sarah Palin in this thoughtful if glacially paced teledrama. Woody Harrelson and Ed Harris are also good as strategist Steven Schmidt and the late John McCain.

A small portion of the bestseller is given the movie treatment with a strong cast that focuses on the McCain-Palin campaign of 2008, specifically with the selection of Palin and the final few weeks of the presidential campaign.

If you're a Sarah Palin fan you'll probably not find much interest in this, but it's a pretty entertaining watch...and informative, if it's as true as Schmidt claims it is.

Some shots and angles just didn't work. Lastly, in the beginning of the film, I'm confused whether the film centered on Palin or McCain and his team? I couldn't feel some …
