Iím not as politically savvy as Iíd like to be, but isnít that part of the reason folks running for office have campaigns? Yes, the ultimate goal is to get votes, but theyíre educating the public on their policies in the process. Now the question is, what happens when scandal swoops in and steals that spotlight? Thatís where folks like Chris Lehane and characters like Kerstin (Jamie Chung) and Dimitris (Richard Schiff) step in.

Knife Fight stars Rob Lowe as Paul Turner, a fictional version of Lehane, the filmís co-writer. When a political candidate sleeps with a young office aide or takes a massage a little too far, Paul steps in to spin the situation in their favor. Paulís incredibly good at what he does, but when a Kentucky governor and California senator screw up big time right before the election, thereís no way Paul can patch things up without the help of his assistant, Kerstin, and Dimitris, an operative who specializes in uncovering secrets.

Just six months away from the next presidential election, Knife Fight brings the campaign process to the forefront at the Tribeca Film Festival. In honor of the movieís world premiere, Schiff and Chung were on hand to discuss their political knowhow, the pressure of shooting the full feature with a big ensemble cast in just a month, hopes for the filmís reception and more. Catch it all in the video interview below.
