Dinesh D’Souza is planning to go where NBC and CNN feared to tread: an on-screen portrayal of Hillary Clinton.
Ten months ago, NBC and CNN, under immense pressure from both the right and the left, famously ditched their planned projects focused on the former first lady, U.S. senator and secretary of state. But a portion of D’Souza’s upcoming documentary, America, features Clinton as both a teenager and a college student, played both times by a 22-year-old novice actress named Jennifer Pearson.
In America, D’Souza attempts to debunk arguments he says the political left makes to demean the U.S., including its motives and its history. In the one-minute scene embedded below, a youth minister tells a 14-year-old Clinton that he’s excited for her to meet someone, then a door opens but the clip ends before the meeting takes place. D’Souza, the conservative filmmaker who was also behind the surprise hit movie, 2016: Obama’s America, tells The Hollywood Reporter that the person on the other side of the door is leftist icon Saul Alinsky. What happens after that, D’Souza won’t say, but there are plenty of clues in America: Imagine a World Without Her, his just-published book in which the film is based.
In D’Souza’s book he analyzes Alinsky’s most famous book,Rules for Radicals, beginning with the often overlooked fact that it was partially dedicated to the devil, because, as Alinsky put it, he was "the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom."
