We here at Popdose like for all of our readers to feel as if they’re as cool and hip as the Hollywood community and that they’d actually get to attend Sundance to check out some fresh, new indie movies. While we can’t get you to Utah, we CAN get at least one new indie film to you! Knife Fight is a new political drama starring Rob Lowe and Richard Schiff, who appeared together in that classic political TV series, The West Wing.
In Knife Fight, Lowe stars as Paul Turner, a savvy strategist sharply maneuvering politicians out of scandal and into public office. With the help of a bright young assistant (Jamie Chung) and a seedy operative (Richard Schiff), Turner spins every news cycle and a shrewd reporter (Julie Bowen) on behalf of his clients: a philandering Kentucky governor (Eric McCormick), a blackmailed California senator (David Harbour), and an idealistic doctor turned gubernatorial candidate (Carrie-Anne Moss). When the ugly side of Turner’s work begins to haunt him, he learns that even in the bloodiest of battles, sometimes you have to fight clean.
Knife Fight is described as a “smart, crackling, comedic inside look at what happens behind closed doors in modern American politics.” Two-time Academy Award-winning director Bill Guttentag (Best Documentary in 1988 for You Don’t Have to Die, and again in 2003 for Twin Towers) teamed with renowned political consultant Chris Lehane to create this story for the new century. Knife Fight aims to pulls back the curtain on the “real truth” of the political process.
