AV Benefits:

Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.

Professional Reviews:

"This election-year, PBS 'Frontline' franchise excels at surfacing and synthesizing the personal details that make the partisan clash more of a human story. The producers blend news clips, vintage video and in-person interviews to construct dual portraits that find their own rhythm, like a political junkie's remix." - The Washington Post

"The two-hour documentary could stand as the most concise, level-headed political biography we're likely to get this election season." - Bloomberg/ Businessweek

"Should be considered essential viewing for all voters seeking to make an informed choice for president in November." - Politico

"Michael Kirk, the show's guiding hand, never steers toward either candidate, but also spares neither." - Washington Post

"Eye opening regardless of political preconceptions... a must see." - Denver Post

"If you long for the good old days of walking a bipartisan reporting line, tune in to this FRONTLINE special." - Detroit Free Press

"If you want a calm, measured look at who we might be electing or re-electing to the highest office, this is the place to start." - Seattle Times

"Watching The Choice - a must-see for anyone even remotely interested in peering beneath the surface of two very different human beings who hail from very differentcircumstances and cultural backgrounds - is both a telling and revealing experience, not just for what it says about Obama and Romney but for what it says about our own media-saturated, sound bite-driven, celebrity obsessed age." - The Vancouver Sun

"The Choice is not part of the echo chamber. There's little room for partisan bickering, or a slanted interpretation of the facts." - The Vancouver Sun

"The Choice is both timely and timeless." - Roger Catlin/Television Reviewer

"Part psychological take on the candidates and part policy examination, it's an eye-opening two hours." - The Globe and Mail

Description

  • It's been called the starkest choice in years, between two men with sharply different backgrounds, views, and prescriptions for fixing the country's problems. Mitt Romney and Barack Obama have spent hundreds of millions of dollars to tell their own stories, but in The Choice 2012, FRONTLINE goes far beyond the headlines on a journey deep into their worlds, among their friends and family, critics, and closest colleagues, to understand what drives these men. Based on dozens of new interviews and hundreds of hours of research, FRONTLINE's authoritative profiles that emerge are also a portrait of America in an era of uncertainty-and a guide to the choices that lie ahead.
