Description

Live from Baghdad reveals the story of how CNN became the only news agency to cover the first Gulf War from within Baghdad. Michael Keaton stars as CNN executive producer Robert Wiener, who took a minor news team into the Iraq capital after the invasion of Kuwait. Accompanied by producer Ingrid Formanek (Helena Bonham Carter), Wiener battled with teams from other networks, fought with antiquated equipment, and wrestled with Iraqi attempts to control information-- especially with an information minister named Naji (the outstanding David Suchet). After countless setbacks, Wiener's team triumphed when they had the only connection from inside Baghdad as the American forces began dropping bombs. Though a TV-movie about TV news coverage is a bit incestuous, Live from Baghdad makes for compelling viewing; the script and direction are taut, performances are excellent all around, and the perspective on the war is multilayered.
