{In The Loop}

War in the Middle East and comedy don’t usually go hand in hand, but writer-director Armando Iannucci manages to do so with In the Loop, a wickedly sharp satire about British politicians entangled in a U.S. campaign to promote a war.

The US President and UK Prime Minister fancy a war, but not everyone agrees that war is a good thing. When the mild-mannered minister inadvertently appears to back the war on prime-time television, he immediately attracts the attention and soon, the Brits are in Washington, where diplomatic relations collide and off-hand remark quickly spirals into an insurmountable mountain of conflict. . The film is fast-paced and almost unbearably witty. In The Loop stars Steve Coogan, David Rasche, Mimi Kennedy and James Gandolfini. Look for it in limited release July 24th.
