Despite charges of character assassination that drove made for TV movie The Reagans off CBS's primetime schedule, the three hour production is actually sympathetic and even generous in its portrayal of Ronald and Nancy Reagan's rise from hard working Hollywood couple to First Family. Beginning with their first date in 1949, the story establishes parallel dramatic tracks, the Reagans' acquisition of power and remoteness from their children, and never veers from them. The most interesting section concerns crucial political transitions made by the onetime Democratic loyalist and future Republican governor and president (James Brolin), though Reagan is never portrayed as an opportunist with flexible principles. Once more familiar details kick in, Reagan's hard line as California's boss, the presidential campaigns, two terms in the White House, Iran-Contra, etc., the script shifts focus to Nancy (Judy Davis) and her ascendancy as a fierce player in the doddering Ronald's latter administration. It's all fascinating, and most certainly not a hatchet job.
