A Perfect Candidate

Season 10 Episode 10 | 1h 44m 4s

Disproving the adage that there are no second acts in American life, Iran/Contra legend Oliver North re-emerged to challenge incumbent Charles Robb in a hotly contested 1994 Virginia senatorial race. R.J. Cutler and David Van Taylor weave a modern-day parable about leadership in America and campaign culture in a cynical age where voter interests are lost in a media hall of mirrors.
