About the Movie

With John McCain trailing in the polls during the 2008 U.S. presidential election, strategist Steve Schmidt knew he needed a 'game changer' to turn the tide. With Sarah Palin, he thought he had found that person. From director Jay Roach and writer Danny Strong--the team behind HBO Films' 'Recount'--comes this searing, behind-the-scenes look at McCain's ill-fated campaign. Told primarily through Schmidt's eyes, the film pulls back the curtain on the McCain team and their clash over politics and principles as Schmidt championed Palin as McCain's running mate only to later regret it as pressures on the Alaska Governor brought the campaign perilously close to irrelevance. Julianne Moore, Woody Harrelson and Ed Harris star. Directed by Jay Roach; written by Danny Strong, based on the book by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: This is a sharp-edged but not unsympathetic portrait of a flawed heroine. – Alessandra Stanley, New York Times, Aug 3, 2012

Rotten: It all feels like piling on - the campaign movie as blooper reel. – James Poniewozik, TIME Magazine, Aug 3, 2012

Fresh: Pleasure, you may get out of Game Change. Truth will be in the eye of the beholder. – Robert Bianco, USA Today, Aug 3, 2012

Best movie

My favorite new movie, on HBO ONdemand. It's a must see movie. Nervous break downs senator "O"biden is what she calls Biden. Katie couric intervene and more

Oh what fun

as Palin wonders "gosh how did they film that. I don't remember doing a film." Oooh i'm feeling all mavericky!@#?

amazing movie

this movie was so much fun to watch, and Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin….totally flawless. It def made me more sympathetic towards the whole Palin camp. While I might not agree with all of her politics, i do agree with her decision to want to stand out and be herself, and Julianne Moore captures that want so well. Def. recommend to everyone regardless of political creed and nature.
