Never one to shy away from controversy--and following on from JFK and NIXON--director Oliver Stone concludes his 'Presidential Trilogy' with W., a star-laden biopic of America's 43rd president, George W. Bush. John Brolin (AMERICAN GANGSTER, NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN) stars as our eponymous 'hero' in this critical analysis of Bush's rise from election through his first term as president of the United States. Elizabeth Banks (ZACK AND MIRI MAKE A PORNO, SPIDER-MAN), James Cromwell (CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER, L.A. CONFIDENTIAL) and Ellen Burstyn (THE EXORCIST, REQUIEM FOR A DREAM) co-star as Bushes Laura, George H. W. and Barbara, and are ably supported by the likes of Thandie Newton (CRASH, ROCKNROLLA), JEFFREY WRIGHT (BASQUIAT, QUANTAM OF SOLACE), Richard Dreyfuss (JAWS, CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND), Ioan Gruffud (FANTASTIC FOUR, KING ARTHUR) and Scott Glenn (THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, TRAINING DAY) filling out the cast as Condoleezza Rice, Colin Powell, Dick Cheney, Tony Blair and Donald Rumsfeld, respectively.
