Sedona News – The National Theatre of London continues its season with its acclaimed new production of “Best of Enemies” showing in Sedona on Sunday, May 21 at 3 p.m. The Sedona International Film Festival hosts the big screen premiere at its Alice Gill-Sheldon Theatre.
David Harewood and Zachary Quinto play feuding political rivals in James Graham’s multiple award-winning new drama “Best of Enemies”.
In 1968 America, as two men fight to become the next president, all eyes are on the battle between two others: the cunningly conservative William F. Buckley Jr., and the unruly liberal Gore Vidal.
During a new nightly television format, they debate the moral landscape of a shattered nation. As beliefs are challenged and slurs slung, a new frontier in American politics is opening and television news is about to be transformed forever.
Jeremy Herrin directs this blistering political thriller, filmed live in London’s West End.
