W. (2008)

W. (2008)

The siblings: George W. (Josh Brolin) and Jeb Bush (Jason Ritter)

What puts them at odds? One is the child groomed for political life and encouraged by his family to rise up the ranks. The other becomes President of the United States of America.

The real-life tension between America’s most misunderestimated President, the man who single-handedly won the war in Iraq, and his brother Jeb is a relatively small part of Oliver Stone’s film about Dubya. But it’s there, driving some of the elder Bush’s ambition and pushing him to transform from a college drunk and make something of himself. While we might have been better off with Jeb as the leader of the free world, the former Florida governor hasn’t ruled out making a run in 2016, although he has yet to make a formal announcement on the matter. Stone brought the difference between the two to vivid life, which is impressive considering Brolin’s natural charisma.

Which sibling is your favourite?
