THE COMEY RULE (2020 on Showtime and Hulu):  Emmy winners Jeff Daniels and Brendan Gleeson star as former FBI Director James Comey and President Donald J. Trump in this two-part event series that tells the story of two powerful men, whose strikingly different personalities, ethics and loyalties put them on a collision course. Part one (1 hour long) follows the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails and their impact on the election. Part two (2 hours long) is an account of the first months of the Trump presidency - where allies became enemies, enemies became friends and truth depended on what side you were on. Gleeson had Trump down pat and confesses that he didn’t want to do it as a cartoon. The Washington Post said that “While never completely convincing, he does impart the right mix of ignorance, arrogance and malevolence. We thought Gleeson was terrific, as was Daniels. The Guardian said: "Democrats are likely to quibble over its sympathetic portrayal of Comey in the TV miniseries, while Republicans may dismiss it as anti-Trump propaganda." “The Comey Rule is a horror film,” wrote Laura Miller on the Slate website, “and the monster is Donald Trump.” The drama is based on Comey’s 2018 memoir A Higher Loyalty. GRADE B+
