Friday Night at the Movies: The American President
Described. Audio only. mp3 format.
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Tagline: Why can't the most powerful man in the world have the one thing he
Starring: Michael Douglas, Annette Bening, Martin Sheen,
Director: Rob Reiner
Andrew Shepherd is a handsome, youthful widower and a dedicated Democrat
raising a teenage daughter. He also just happens to be the president of the
United States of America, and a very popular one at that. Unfortunately,
he's also quite lonely, and the life of a president leaves little time for
dating. But when he meets luminous lobbyist Sydney Ellen Wade, he's
instantly smitten and impulsively (and somewhat awkwardly) asks her out to a
Shocked and highly uncertain of what she's getting into, Sydney accepts his
invitation, and the courting process begins, to the unrelenting delight of
the media. The chief executive's protective staff, however, isn't so sure
the romance is a good thing, particularly when political paparazzi capture
Sydney spending the night in the presidential bedroom. While intriguing to
the press, the affair spells trouble in the form of Republican presidential
hopeful Bob Rumson, who uses the romance to attack Shepherd's supposed lack
of family values and moral instincts. Rumson's ploy works, Shepherd's
popularity plummets, weakening his reelection bid, his hand on Capitol Hill,
and ultimately threatening his relationship with Sydney. If Shepherd
salvages his political career, will it be at the expense of Sydney's love?
