People who want even more drama out of election-year politics ought to mosey over to the nearest computer screen, where they can watch a trailer for W, Oliver Stone’s biopic about George W. Bush.
The movie’s all-star cast includes Josh Brolin, Jeffrey Wright, James Cromwell, Ellen Burstyn, Ioan Gruffud, Rob Corddry, Thandie Newton, Elizabeth Banks, Richard Dreyfuss, Scott Glenn, Noah Wyle and Toby Jones as members of the president’s family and inner circle.
In the trailer, Stone – already known for tackling John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon – offers viewers glimpses of Brolin as Bush in various phases of his life, from an irresponsible Yale undergrad to leader of the free world esconced in the Oval Office.
