FRONTLINE: The Choice 2016

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are two of the most polarizing presidential candidates in modern history. Filmmaker Michael Kirk goes behind the headlines to investigate what has shaped these two candidates, where they came from, how they lead, and why they want to take on one of the most difficult jobs imaginable.

This two-hour interwoven investigative biography of Clinton and Trump draws on dozens of interviews from those who know the candidates best - friends and family, advisors and adversaries - as well as authors, journalists, and political insiders. What emerges is a deeply reported narrative arc of both candidates' lives, side by side, with trustworthy journalism and powerful new insights at a moment when voters are being bombarded with conflicting partisan stories about each candidate. From their childhoods, to their college experiences, to their tumultuous careers, FRONTLINE investigates formative moments in the lives of Donald Trump, who has challenged the establishment at every turn, and Hillary Clinton, who has become the first female presidential nominee.

The Choice 2016 gives viewers a new understanding of the two people who are fighting to lead America - and is essential viewing for every American looking to make an informed choice on November 8, 2016.

Incisive and informative, like the 2012 issue!
Review by Traveler on 07/17/20 review stating Incisive and informative, like the 2012 issue!
I looked for this BECAUSE of the 2012 issue and the methodical way they examine their subjects. Regarding any bias: Ive noted that the series has nearly, if not always stated when materials were not reviewed or available or which persons would not comment on the topic and they ALWAYS invite further discussion and review online and elsewhere.. so cut the whining. These are publicly funded, first class, professionally executed, in-depth programs that others just wont bother to tackle. Way to go, Frontline! And thank you for so many great years of excellent work and results!

Interesting msterial but a biased presentation
Review by Iowa V. on 07/17/20 review stating Interesting msterial but a biased presentation
I am no Donald Trump fan, but it is completely obvious that the producers of this report favor Hillary Clinton. Trump supporters are completely justified in saying it is biased. Come on folks. The only childhood aquaintances you could find for Trump are the ones who said he still acts like the six year old who kicked down others blocks while everyone Hillary knew admired her? She was upset over the aaination of Martin Luther King but there is no mention of how he felt. She was harmed by her fathers lack of praise but he was sent to military school with no ill effects. Her secrecy has roots in experiences that were not her fault, etc. etc. etc. There was interesting material here and you had the opportunity to present it in a way that voters may have truly taken to heart. But you failed because you didnt give voters credit for being able to see through your intentions.

EXCELLENT review of LIVES OF BOTH CANDIDATES for 70 years
Review by Bonnie J. on 07/17/20 review stating EXCELLENT review of LIVES OF BOTH CANDIDATES for 70 years
Includes short clips of both individuals and their activities. The reporting goes back and forth through the years from one candidates actions and story to the other candidates activities. Important and interesting interviews with some schoolmates and other acquaintances throughout the years.

Review by Scj J. on 07/17/20 review stating VERY FAIR AND UNBIASED. EXCELLENT! EXCELLENT
Masterfully done. I was afraid it would be biased one way or the other but this documentary showed the faults of both equally. Definitely worth adding to my collection.

A Contrast of Character
Review by The M. on 07/17/20 review stating A Contrast of Character
Just finished watching this well balanced and engaging progarm. Was hoping to order it for a friend , a misguided Trump supporter, to view before the election. Unfortunately, it appears that it cannot ship in time. My friend is a kind-hearted, highly educated woman with an analytical brain, but she is terribly busy and I fear uninformed, She has been swayed by the myth of Clintons untrustworthiness. I think this video puts that to rest. Trump is quoted as saying that if you repeat something often enough people will believe it. That is a fundamental principle of propaganda and it appears, if the polls are right, that half our nation , including my intelligent friend, has fallen for it. If only people knew more about both candidates background, the people and events that have influenced them, as this video reveals, it would be clear that Trumps values and his character could only lead to disaster for this country. Leaders set the tone, and if the Donald becomes our leader, crass materialism, incivilty and disregard for others will be regarded as virtues. The programs greatest shortcoming was to ignore Clintons contribution to policy making and legislation to benefit others.

Street date AFTER the election?????
Review by Guess on 07/17/20 review stating Street date AFTER the election?????
What is the point in releasing this AFTER the election? Granted, I see it is still available to watch on the Frontline website, but you would think they would want to release it before it is no longer of interest.

Balanced news, huh?.
Review by Larry on 07/17/20 review stating Balanced news, huh?.
While Trump has his worms, you left out entirely Hillarys shenanigans at the Rose Law Firm at which subpoenaed papers went missing, but found mysteriously in a closet at the White House. You also left out the tragedy in Benghazi, where Amb. Stevens requested more protection were ignored by Hillary and the lies and lies after the tragedy and her What different does it make comment. How about her lies about what REALLY went on. How about her secret deal between one of our uranium mines owners selling 20% share to the Russians and Hillary getting a kickback of 200 or 250 grand for 20% by the deal for a donation be given by the mine ownership into the Clinton Foundation. How about Hillarys lies to us about her email scandal. There is so much more but isnt that enough but it doesnt come to my mind right now. It is clear that Front-line is just another endorsement for Hillary! Balance news, huh?

3.5 out of 4 stars

"…this fair-minded documentary still provides valuable insights into the characters of Trump and Clinton. Recommended." - Video Librarian
