Wag the Dog
1997, 97 minutes

Dustin Hoffman and Robert DeNiro lead an all-star cast in Barry Levinson’s WAG THE DOG. This comedy focuses on the machination of power as a presidential spin doctor (Robert DeNiro) teams with a celebrated Hollywood producer (Dustin Hoffman) to manufacture a fake war. The film also stars Anne Heche, Denis Leary and Willie Nelson. Less than two weeks before election day, a scandal erupts that threatens to cripple the President’s bid for a second term. The ultimate spin doctor, Conrad Brean (Robert DeNiro)has the uncanny ability to manipulate politics, the press and most importantly - the American people.
