Synopsis: Fred Flarsky (Seth Rogen) is a gifted and free-spirited journalist with an affinity for trouble. Charlotte Field (Charlize Theron) is one of the most influential women in the world. Smart, sophisticated, and accomplished, she's a powerhouse diplomat with a talent for...well, mostly everything. The two have nothing in common, except that she was his babysitter and childhood crush. When Fred unexpectedly reconnects with Charlotte, he charms her with his self-deprecating humor and his memories of her youthful idealism. As she prepares to make a run for the Presidency, Charlotte impulsively hires Fred as her speechwriter, much to the dismay of her trusted advisors. A fish out of water on Charlotte's elite team, Fred is unprepared for her glamourous lifestyle in the limelight. However, sparks fly as their unmistakable chemistry leads to a round-the-world romance and a series of unexpected and dangerous incidents.

A NOTE FROM MILES HANKINS

Usually the trick is not to try to make the music funny. That's usually a sure way to make it horrible. So we approached it with the angle little bit more towards the sincerity of the personal story in the film. We decided that the movie would benefit from a few different sound palettes: so there is a nice sort of accoustic sound for the love theme and things like this; and there is this glorious sweeping Americana for this sort of patriotic side of the film. We just had a lot of fun with a lot of different styles. Jonathan is a great guy to work with because he cares so deeply about the music but he also allows the composer a lot of creative space to explore new ideas and things like that. It is always a very rewarding time working with Jonathan.
