Simply one of the best political stories - it has almost everything. Fiction and non-fiction is mixed in an utmost interesting blend.

Well crafted television docudrama about the rise of Tony Blair and New Labour at the hands of Gordon Brown.

An interesting docu-drama look at the rise of Blair! The DVD box says it's a prequel to The Queen (it has the same writer, director, and star) and I think it's really funny to think of The Queen as an action franchise (I'm waiting for Queen 2: Queen Harder!) This is a very well acted and written film, and it's short, so yay!

And Tony Blair came to power. Sheen was better playing Blair in The Queen though.

An entertaining precursor to THE QUEEN.

A well acted British political drama. A little slow-paced for my liking, but an interesting story nonetheless.

Brand new drama probing the enduring, complex and often tense relationship between Tony Blair and Gordon Brown - an affiliation which stands at the heart of the Labour party and which forms one of the most significant political partnerships of recent years.

I really interesting look at the internal politics of the UK and very helpful insight for Americans. The acting was also superb.

pretty dull and boring, but i wasn't a huge fan of "the queen" either. acting was ok, and stephen frears is undeniably a great director

I just love political dramas.

Strongly acted and directed, with a sharp script by Peter Morgan, "The Deal" is one of the few movies I wish had been longer. Essential viewing for anyone who likes "The Queen."

Sadly,I totally understand Gordon Brown...

A fascinating insight into one of the most famous run ups to an election in british history. Both Morrisey and Sheen are excellent at capturing the personalities of Brown and Blair without caricaturing. The Direction is also excellent. A must see.

an interesting view of the troubles the labor party went through in the 80's. If the Tories hadn't self destructed who knows if Labor would have ever gotten ahead.

fascinating glimpse into british politics for those of us who weren't really watching much BBC in the early 90s.

I think this film captured the infighting fairly well. And I thought Michael Sheen did great in The Queen... superb.
