The Hopefuls. Close presents two political couples, and explores their friendship and their marriages. While often funny, stress and tension drive the plot, and the presentation of both marriage and friendship rings true. Set in D.C. and Texas, both settings anchor the action with a strong sense of place, and proximity to power and the use of ambition as fuel felt perfect.
