If a political candidate is personally flawed, but stands to make a positive difference in millions of lives, would you help him win? That question looms over the life of "true believer" Paul Turner, a savvy strategist sharply maneuvering politicians out of scandal and into public office. With the help of a bright young assistant and a seedy operative, Turner spins every news cycle and a shrewd reporter on behalf of his clients: a philandering Kentucky governor, a blackmailed California senator, and an idealistic doctor turned gubernatorial candidate. When the ugly side of Turner’s work begins to haunt him, he learns that even in the bloodiest of battles, sometimes you have to fight clean.

Limited Releases: Spoiler Alert

January 25th, 2013

It's a relatively slow week for limited releases, especially if you go by the number of theater counts we've received so far. We only have a theater count for one film, Knife Fight, which likely won't have a significant opening. The film I'm most looking forward to seeing is the spoilerific John Dies at the End, but there are multiple reasons why it won't thrive in theaters. If there is only one release on this week's like that will thrive in theaters, it's Yossi, but even then it has just a 50/50 chance. More...
