Never before has political satire been so wickedly funny...or more timely than in this masterful tour de farce created by a lineup of Hollywood's biggest talents; directed by Barry Levinson, written by Hilary Henkin and David Mamet, and starring Dustin Hoffman and Robert DeNiro. When the president is caught in a sex scandal less than 2 weeks before the election, the White House sends for "Mr. Fix-it." Washington spinmaster Conrad Brean (DeNiro) needs a war to distract the public's attention, and he calls on Hollywood's top producer Stanley Motss (Hoffman) to create it. Nominated for 2 Academy Awards including Best Actor (Dustin Hoffman), Wag The Dog is a biting look at American politics and the highest rated spectacle this country's ever seen.
