Depending on your age, The War Room will be either a reminder of an infamous election or a whole new insight into the Clinton presidency. Chris Hegedus and D. A. Pennebaker were given unprecedented access to Bill Clinton’s 1992 presidential campaign. They were even allowed into the “War Room” of the title, the campaign’s headquarters, and had a limited degree of access to Bill Clinton himself. Because this is a documentary rather than a show, there is no “cast” of actors. Instead, the documentary showcases the talents of Bill Clinton’s campaign team. Many of the people behind his presidential bid have gone on to have significant political careers of their own. How did it all ultimately end? Read on to learn if you can watch The War Room on Netflix and find out yourself.
