Biographical account of America's President for the latter part of WWII. Shows Truman's rise from small-town nobody to leader of the USA, his decision to use the Atomic Bomb against Japan, and subsequent election as the US' post-war President.
This covers the major events of Truman's life, focusing primarily on his time in office, doing a capable job scratching the surface of a complicated presidency. Gary Sinise's physicality and accent make his an incredibly convincing portrayal. Diana Scarwid is enjoyable as chilly First Lady Bess. There are some wonderfully personal moments, like when he thanks his kitchen staff for a birthday cake and informs them it's V-E Day, but this is mostly by-the-numbers. I'd say it's on par with most presidential biopics.
