We don’t have any skin in the game when it comes to the accuracy of “Game Change” — which is why it’s so easy for us to sit back and slowly pick apart Julianne Moore’s performance of former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.
If you haven’t seen the movie yet, you can watch a newly posted YouTube clip of a scene-by-scene comparison of Palin’s actual television appearances to Moore’s emulation of those clips. I’ve never met Moore, but she carries herself in a much more soft-spoken way than Palin, and this definitely comes through in “Game Change.” She seems to overdo the accent as well, but we can imagine mimicking Palin’s voice can be difficult for sustained periods of time. While she also “leaves out the sexy sassiness” of Palin, Moore performs an uncanny replication of Palin’s mannerisms and tics to the point of discomfort. It couldn’t have been easy to replicate Palin’s tongue-tied moment during her infamous Katie Couric interview. Moore certainly did her homework for this role!
