The Conquest 2.0 stars

Conquest movie poster

Director Xavier Durringer imagines the political ascent of French president Nicolas Sarkozy. Denis Podalydès looks the part of the underdog, a slouchy duck of a man who likes to protrude his bottom lip. He sustains interest as Sarkozy, but it is Florence Pernel as his wife and top advisor who earns the thespian vote. The behind-closed-doors proceedings are diverting but never engaging enough to sustain interest. 2012.
