General Notes

Description

The love life of a President -- how a single father gets back into the "dating scene" while being the President of the U.S. Annette Bening plays the love interest, as a tough and idealistic political operative who is trying to get a politically correct environmental law passed, while becoming attracted to the President (Michael Douglas). The tension develops on two fronts: conservatives attacking the President because he's got a love life, and a conflict of interests between the political calculations of the President vs. Bening's environmental push. Resolves itself when the President matches her idealism.
