Aaron Sorkin's frustrating political drama is meant to be polarizing and overly dramatic. These are not fair criticisms, which I've heard tossed around in negative reviews. It's hard for political drama's to be unbiased and Sorkin is outspoken in his views. He seeks to connect today's younger left-winged audience with a very relevant story and thanks to great actors like Sacha Baron Cohen and Eddie Redmayne, it's emotionally effective as well. I would still recommend this film to everyone because it's powerful. It's words hold weight and the actors delivering these words all respect this weight. It doesn't matter what political side you belong to because the performances will invest you so quickly. While Sorkin's directing skills are second to his writing, it's easy to forget about when you have such important characters on screen.
