The year 2000 brought the system of Democracy in the United States to crisis point. After 8 years of Democratic Party control, America witnessed an astonishing and extraordinary change of leadership. While failing to win the popular vote, the Republican Party managed to win the presidency - a result of polling irregularities, an inordinate number of discarded ballots and the monumental move by the Supreme Court of stepping in to decide a national election result. Debate ran rampant throughout the country, from the streets to the courts, and as the entire world looked on 'Last Party' filmakers were there, capturing the spectacle that surrounded one of the most dramatic and unprecedented events in US political history. Philip Seymour Hoffman is your dynamic host for this compelling exploration of state of democracy in America, chronicling the sensational 2000 Presidential Elections and taking a journey deep into the belly of the beast that is 'American politics'.
