Irrespective of your political beliefs, check out In the Loop (In the Loop), a sharp, sometimes laugh out loud satire nominated for best adapted screenplay. The effervescent cast includes James Gandolfini as an American General in search of his balls and Anna Chlumsky, the former child star of My Girl I & II, as the ambitious but too smart for her own good assistant to a senior State Department official. Most captivating is Scottish actor and Academy Award winning Director Peter Capaldi in the political spin doctor role of Malcolm Tucker, who’s most instructive on new ways to bend the human anatomy. Finally, Tom Hollander adds great subtly to his portrayal as Britain’s Secretary of State for International Development.
