Add Full Plot
"Everybody's Making Pictures," observes Martin Scorsese in this sly sequel to Robert Altman and Garry Trudeau's Emmy Award-winning satirical miniseries, Tanner '88. Sixteen years after Jack Tanner (Michael Murphy) ran for president, his filmmaker daughter Alex (Cynthia Nixon) is making a documentary about her dad's dark horse campaign. At least, that's the plan - until a disastrous screening sends Alex back to the drawing board, and on to the 2004 Democratic National Convention.
Off the record, on camera.
