W. Blu Ray

| Blu Ray

A bit like marmite, you either love him or hate him, but one thing's for sure, George W. Bush, the former President of the United States of America, is one entertaining and extremely controversial character! W. is directed by Oliver Stone, well known for his other Presidential films (JFK and Nixon), and Stars John Brolin (Bush), Elizabeth Banks, James Cromwell and Ellen Burstyn. The story doesn't simply show Bush as a caricature, but centres on his rise from election and through his first term as president. It explores his relationship with his father and the burden of the Bush Legacy, which eventually led him to the Whitehouse. The film splits into neat sections, each offering a different element of Bush. If you expect to see the ex-president being ripped apart in this film, you'll be disappointed. Bush is portrayed as determined but misguided by others. Instead of being portrayed as a man responsible for his own downfall, the film takes on a sad and sympathetic slant and shows that it was just to big of a task for this US president.

Oliver Stone directs this dramatisation of the life and eight-year presidency of George W Bush. The film features an all-star cast playing the White House's most high-profile figures, with Josh Brolin as the president, Elizabeth Banks as Laura Bush, Richard Dreyfuss as Vice President Dick Cheney, Jeffrey Wright as Secretary of State Colin Powell, Thandie Newton as Condoleezza Rice and James Cromwell as George Bush Senior. Like other Oliver Stone movies, it polarised opinion almost immediately on its release. While some have seen the film as a two-hour character assassination, others have complained that it is too sympathetic towards the president.
