PASADENA, California (AP) — In a politically polarised country, the people behind HBO's upcoming movie on Sarah Palin's vice-presidential campaign are being careful not to take one side or the other.
"There is no agenda here," Danny Strong, writer of the film Game Change, said at a news conference Friday. Film-makers said they sought historical accuracy.
The movie debuts March 10. It is based on John Heilemann and Mark Halperin's book about the 2008 presidential campaign, but focuses specifically on Palin. Director Jay Roach said he wrote a long letter to the former Alaska governor seeking an interview with her to help the film, "but I got a very quick e-mail back from her attorney saying, 'I checked, she declined'."
