- The Program
Stephen Frears (The Queen, Philomena) tackles the Lance Armstrong scandal from the perspective of an Irish journalist who is convinced the cyclist is using performance-enhancing drugs. Although the subject matter hardly interests me, Frears has a knack for making emotionally compelling films based on true stories. He isn’t flashy; he directs solid and well-acted stories. Hopefully, this film will not stray too far from Frears’ program.
