A sex-filled romp about Hillary Clinton’s life as a twenty-something nerd is apparently well on its way to fruition.
According to The Telegraph, the biopic will begin showing the future First Lady, senator and secretary of state as a humorless Yale law student wearing a “hideous pair of Coke-bottle glasses.” It will end at some point after she has become a humorless staffer on the House inquiry staff that worked to impeach Richard Nixon.
The film, tentatively titled Rodham, is scheduled to start production soon, just as Clinton is pondering another run for the presidency in 2016.
Young Il Kim, the Korean-American screenwriter who cooked up the script, assured The Telegraph that the movie won’t be a bawdy affair.
“I didn’t write 50 Shades of Rodham as some news outlets are suggesting,” Kim said. “I am a boring prude with little imagination.”
Nevertheless, a draft screenplay obtained by The Daily Beast looks downright Lewinsky-esque.
In the draft, which opens at some point in the early 1970s, a young Hillary Clinton is introduced as a law student sporting an “awful haircut.” She is tutoring Robert Reich inside the Yale Law School library in an early scene, explains The Daily Beast. She appears as “the valedictorian of the ‘look-like-shit school of feminism.’”
Viewers also meet her future husband, Bill Clinton. He looks like “a Viking” with a “full mane” and a sweet “six-inch beard.”
Most of the flick will take place in Washington, though, during the time when 26-year-old Hillary worked on a House Watergate committee.
In a later scene, Bill and Hillary “devour each other” inside Hillary’s D.C. apartment. He rips off her shirt. He “buries his head into her cleavage.” However, the encounter is cut short because messages from an answering machine keep interrupting the action.
In still another scene, The Daily Beast says, Hillary gripes that she’s not getting enough nookie. A friend asks if the future president and future First Lady have sex. “It depends upon what the meaning of the word ‘sex’ means,” she answers.
There’s also the strong suggestion of a love affair — or at least a serious mutual crush — between Hillary and William Weld, a Republican who would become governor of Massachusetts.
No one has been cast to play either Bill or Hillary Clinton.
The Daily Caller humbly suggests Golden Globe- and Emmy-winning actor Peter Dinklage to play the role of Robert Reich.
