The saga of the 2000 election is once again playing itself out on the streets of Tallahassee. But this time, it isnít the Presidency thatís at stake, itís box office receipts.The made for HBO movie stars Kevin Spacey as Al Goreís advisor and Laura Dern as Secretary of State Katherine Harris. Called “Recount” it strives to tell the behind the scenes story of how strategy was developed. Bush Lawyer Barry Richard is an advisory to the movie, but has no part.

“You know, nothing could really replicate the reality of it. It was such an extraordinary event,” Richard said. “And when you watch it in film, itís very small in comparison. But as weíve all learned, movie makers are capable of making what looks like a small scene in reality look like a big scene on the screen. So Iíll wait to see it in the movies.”

Movie makers spent the weekend recreating the protests in front of the state Supreme Court.
