The dramatic re-creations are somewhat uneven: The convention staging is quite convincing, the campaign trail less so.

Game Change, which explores how smart people make dumb decisions, is a movie for all of us.

It plausibly lays out Palin's path from unsteady candidate to confident (or arrogant) rogue player.

That it works is testament to an astounding, Emmy-worthy performance by Moore, who plays Palin with nuance, and without a trace of parody.

We're no longer disappointed that Tina Fey didn't get the role that ended up going to Julianne Moore.

It takes a story whose outline we know and uses backstage access to turn it into a well-paced drama.

Beyond the campaign, the movie yields sobering observations about the legitimacy of cable news, modern political extremism and the shrillest voices influencing the Republican Party.

It's a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at politics - as long as you're a Democrat.

But if viewers put politics aside, imagining everyone on screen as a character rather than a stand-in for a real-life figure, they will find Game Change offers enough Shakespearean machinations to warrant praise as an exceptional melodrama.

This is a sharp-edged but not unsympathetic portrait of a flawed heroine.

A compelling, sometimes funny, sometimes poignant dramatization of the behind-the-scenes machinations of the Republican side of the 2008 presidential campaign that is unlikely to sway already entrenched opinions on both sides.

As an entertaining, briskly paced political yarn, it's right up there with HBO's Emmy-winning Recount.
