rave reviews, saying it's the funniest and smartest political comedy to come along in ages.
Though the American president and the British prime minister are itching to attack, a top U.S. general (James Gandolfini) and the British Secretary of State for International Development (Tom Hollander) believe that's the wrong decision. However, a small miscommunication has the two powers ready to go to war, and it's up to the British politician to stop things before they get started.
A RIVETING HEALTH DOCUMENTARY THAT'S WORTH A SHOT
The English Surgeon
The true-life tale of Henry Marsh, a London neurosurgeon who travels to Ukraine to treat desperate patients with no access to modern medical facilities. On a trip to Kiev to give a lecture in 1992, Marsh was shocked to witness the plight of those with severe neurological problems there -- a ghastly world of primitive clinics, Kafkaesque bureaucracy, and medieval surgery -- and began making regular trips back to diagnose patients and perform operations whenever possible. Award-winning filmmaker Geoffrey Smith followed Marsh on one of these trips in 2007, plunging into the chaos of the quest to see and save as many patients as possible.
