Rating:
R
The Big Brass Ring is a screenplay written by Orson Welles which portrays a drama of political prowess and blackmail. Blake Pellarin (William Hurt) is running for governor of Missouri in a close election race that is nearing its end when a man from his past appears. Kim Mennaker (Nigel Hawthorne) was once Blake's mentor and father figure, since Blake's dad died in the Korean War, who later abandoned Blake and the United States when public disclosure of his homosexuality destroyed his political career. This visit from an Mennaker soon proves less then welcome since he forced a young Blake into a photo session in which he recorded the boy in several sexually compromising positions with both a man and a woman. While the photos are harmful enough, Mennaker reveals that this is not the only dirt he can soil Blake's political career with. With political scandals abound, The Big Brass Ring is sure to keep you in suspense as Pellarin's political career dangles from a thread.moreless
