An uproarious send-up of politics and the press, Scoop chronicles the misadventures of William Boot (Michael Maloney, Truly, Madly, Deeply)--an innocent, wide-eyed nature columnist thrust into the role of war correspondent. Sent to cover a revolution in the dusty African republic of Ashmaelia, Boot encounters no actual fighting but a veritable army of eccentrics: feckless journalists, devious government ministers, and scheming ex-pats. Most importantly, he becomes captivated by Katchen--the beautiful but fickle wife of a wayward geologist--who clearly has her own agenda.With its smart script and delightful cast, this adaptation captures all the withering humor of Waugh's classic novel. Also starring Denholm Elliott (Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade), Michael Hordern (Shogun), and Donald Pleasence (Halloween).
