This election season, despite its numerous and frightening flaws, has unarguably been the most dramatic in modern American history. It’s so dramatic, in fact, that even the wonks at PBS can’t help but have a little bit of that excitement juice rub off on them, as indicated by the trailer for the upcoming Frontline election documentary The Choice 2016.
The Choice 2016 is a side-by-side comparison of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, taking the approach of analyzing not their statements or policy platforms, but who they actually are as people, and how they came to be that way. Given the personalities in question, that alone should make it a worthwhile documentary, but the recently-released trailer promises a shot of adrenaline in the proceedings as well.
You can see what I mean by taking a look at the trailer for The Choice 2016 below. And you’ll be able to watch the whole thing on September 27th, when the documentary comes to both PBS stations and online, where it will stream for free at Frontline’s official site here.
Here’s the trailer:
