Julianne Moore Portrays Sarah Palin's Rise and Near Demise

Get ready to see Sarah Palin nearly unravel.

In HBO's Game Change, which dramatizes John McCain's presidential campaign and what happened after he picked Sarah Palin to be his running mate, Julianne Moore plays the Alaska politician as fierce and highly flawed.

"I miss my baby," Moore says as demoralized Palin in a new trailer for the TV movie, which premieres March 10 at 9 p.m.

"She's on the verge of a complete nervous breakdown," says Woody Harrelson, who plays McCain's adviser Steve Schmidt.

The film captures Palin's meteoric rise to fame and shows that she was a shot of adrenaline for the McCain campaign. But when questioned about foreign policy – "You can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska" – things start to go awry.

The trailer promises lots of drama as it portrays the behind-the-scenes struggle between a feisty Palin and McCain's frustrated staff. The struggle for power and control on screen might even live up to the real life battle brewing in the current GOP contest for the Republican nomination.
