“Recount”

November 5th, 2007 by Mike Vasilinda

The saga of the 2000 election is once again playing itself out on the streets of Tallahassee. But this time, it isnt the Presidency thats at stake, its box office receipts.The made for HBO movie stars Kevin Spacey as Al Gores 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, its very small in comparison. But as weve 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 Ill wait to see it in the movies.”

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