[Netflix] House of Cards
From executive producers David Fincher (Fight Club, The Social Network), Beau Willimon (The Ides of March) and Eric Roth (Forest Gump, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button), House of Cards follows ruthless House Majority Whip Francis Underwood (Kevin Spacey) and his wife Claire (Robin Wright), who set off on a path of vengeance when the President elect reneges on his promise to nominate the Congressman for Secretary of State. Underwood makes revenge his lifes elixir and masterwork; with each painstaking stroke of his brush equaling another bite out of the whale that is the Administration. Kate Mara (American Horror Story) co-stars as Zoe Barnes, an equally ambitious young reporter who entangles herself in a Devils deal arrangement with Underwood.
An adaptation of Michael Dobbs' novel, which was already a British mini-series, House of Cards presents a biting portrait of the intersection of district and Washington politics, capitalism, and perhaps most-fascinatingly, Claire Underwoods non-profit/charitable organization, CWI (Clean Water Initiative).
