Dirty campaign tricks, questionable journalistic practices, sex with interns – all the things that make American politics great are on display in Farragut North, the ultimate political power play. Set during a close presidential race on the eve of the Iowa caucuses, a young press secretary’s perceived invincibility is shattered as he falls prey to backroom politics, manipulation from campaign veterans, and the wiles of a seductive young intern. With quick-witted banter and an inside look into the unique beast called the American Political Machine, Farragut North is a timely tale of hubris, loyalty and the lust for power.
