| Sophisticated Review of Complex Topic
This film does an absolutely terrific job of explaining in detail the complex, intellectually demanding task of writing the US Constitution in one long summer. No buggy crashes or romantic affairs like many treatments would do-just a moving, meticulous representation of the difficult work of compromise and negotiating and endless redrafting between differing men with competing interests. Gives impeccable sense of what the real process was actually like without deification of or bowing to myths of the famous signers. I can't imagine a better-written drama about this pivotal event in national history.
