The movie focuses on the young Clinton during the height of the Watergate scandal. With the White House looming in the future, Clinton (who wasn't married to Bill at the time) was the youngest lawyer chosen for the House Judiciary Committee to Impeach Nixon. Bill was still practicing law in Arkansas, and their relationship was more of an "it's complicated" status than an "in a relationship" one.
No word on who else is tied to the project, but Mulligan has proven she's got the chops to play an American hardball underneath her polite and quiet shell — have you seen Shame?! Our fingers are crossed for this one. (Variety)
