There are two new movies out there in the world about George W. Bush. By now most of us, if we haven't already seen Oliver Stone's movie W, have seen at least a half-dozen clips from the film, in addition to watching its star, Josh Brolin, host SNL last weekend.
The other one? It's the film BEING W., released October 8 in France. Evidently, there's some sort of a lock on the trailer so I can't embed the video in my post. You can watch the trailer at the official website here and also check out the must-see poster advertising the film.
How's your French? The website is in French, I don't know French, so I enlisted help from an online translator that did a so-so job, based on this strange translation of the website's Synopsis of the film. Why, it almost reads as if George W. Bush himself is responsible for the wording in the translation below....
BEING W. - Dans la peau de George W. Bush
In the shoes of George W. Bush
Unauthorized autobiography of the most controversial U.S. presidents Unis.A hour assets (generally considered as catastrophic) Karl Zero and Michel Royer offer 'Dubya' the opportunity to explain and defend itself, thanks to talent imitation Jim Meskimen. W cowardly and finally his whole truth. This scenario astounding, Karl Zero and Michel Royer are not the authors is a true story and terrifying that we all inhabitants of the planet, are the heroes of involuntary.
Soon, very soon, we will have the opportunity to win back our standing in the world community. Let's get it right this time.
I learned about BEING W., appropriately, from Eric at Paris Daily Photo.
