Certificate 15

This darkly comic film depicts the creation of fake news (in this case a bogus war) by the White House in order to distract voters from a sex scandal involving the US President. De Niro plays the spin doctor whose master plan it is, and Hoffman is the Hollywood producer brought in to create the war footage. Yet another another successful Hoffman-Levinson partnership.
