    Very interesting. Julianne Moore gives brilliant performance from looks and manners to eyes and voice. Because we know who JM normally sounds and looks, it is interesting to see how she has changed those, esp. her voice.
    @Rami, look at those women filming SP’s speech, they are scary.

    The whole thing shows what a tragedy the whole Palin affair was & continues to be – both for the country and for her. She was a political choice for McCain and completely unprepared, way out of her league, was put through hell during the election, and then, rather than use her new celebrity to do good, she only chose to go for the money and self-aggrandizement. And politically, in choosing to be a spokesperson for “real Americans” she unleashed and empowered the stupidest, most redneck element in the populace.

    An actor’s performance when playing a real person shouldn’t be evaluated on how accurate a mimic they are. Does Moore get to the truth of her “character” is the question that should matter.

    After watching the movie, I too feel that the director went with a somber and forgiving direction.

    For that JM delivered such a powerful performance that no matter what you thought and felt about Palin, you would at least feel some sympathy for the JM’s portrayal of Palin.

    As someone said above, there is really a lot if not too much heart in her performance for a political character who stormed up rhetoric, divisive and effective enough that it is influencing our current political landscape.

    Everything about this woman is already fictitiously scripted. Every word that comes from her mouth is bought and paid for. I don’t know if HBO can Sell Sarah better than she sells herself. She’s cut-throat when it comes to her money and you can see just how scandalous she’ll get for the cash with The Ecstasy of Sarah Palin at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/06/ecstasy-of-sarah-palin_15.html Watch the cash rain down as she teases the public and bats her eyelashes for the green.

    Thing about Sarah Palin is she will defend your rights to be gay, while defending this country. Hilary will give it all over to the UN.

    The lies in the film are not about what Palin said, its about the sick attitude taken towards her, demeaning and defiling her with a coordinated media onslaught. Clucking and superior. None of her detractors will ever rise to the level opf prominence she has.

    After the nearly one week deep breath the democrats took after her “phony columns” speech, the instant love she generated was drowned out by a horrid cacaphony of lies, distortions and character assassinations. We would be lucky to have her as president.

    Ted, you’re godd*mn right there’s a clucking superior attitude towards her as well there should be. Ignorant and vain, and full of lies herself. God why do I feed the trolls. One other thing: “rising to a level of prominence” means nothing. At all. Christ, Kim Kardashian has a greater level prominence than Palin and she shouldn’t be President.

    I think the script and Moore’s portrayal were nicely nuanced. It didn’t paint Palin as intrinsically evil, but rather as a dolt who was out of her league and most likely mentally unstable even before the pressures of the campaign drove her over the edge. But neither did the film forgive Palin. Moore also portrayed her as vindictive, petty, egomaniacal and unforgivably stupid.

    It was perhaps a better portrayal than Palin deserved, but I’m glad it wasn’t merely a villainous moustache twirler. And actually, it was McCain who was let off too easy in the portrayal by Ed Harris and the script.

    Moore was fabulous. Far more than a mimic. But it’s also important that she nailed the look and the facial expressions and the speech patterns, and that – in matters of public material widely available – she did not stray far from reality.

    Plain did get over her head in accepting the nomination as McCain’s VP. The transformation of her character throughout the movie was incredible, and Julianne Moore did an excellent job in her acting like Palin. To the point that I forgot it wasn’t her.

    It was a great movie, and I got sucked into the drama of the election all over again. It was neat to see the perspective of the Republican party from the inside.

    Julianne gives much more than an Emmy-winning
    performance here, but the few places where
    she strays out of her zone are those where
    her innate superior intelligence compared
    to a complete lack of same on Sarah Palin’s
    part shows through. Sarah is innately
    an edgy confrontation person -all the time-
    and this type of creature is incredibly hard
    to (and exhausting) inhabit. Julianne, I don’t
    think is anything like this and my hat is off
    to her based on the short time she had to
    prepare such an amazing portrayal and a
    film we must alway go back to to remind
    who is fit for office to represent us and
    who clearly is not.
