‘Homeland’

by Kaori Shoji

Director: Various

Language: English

The much-awaited TV series (and incidentally Barack Obama’s favorite) “Homeland” is finally available for sale/rental in Japan. Starring Claire Danes as driven CIA agent Carrie Mathison and Damian Lewis as her nemesis Nicholas Brody, “Homeland” packs in dirty dealings in Iraq, military conspiracy and nasty U.S. government antics. Some of the punches are real close to home, but hey, the president likes it, so the rest of us can relax and watch voraciously.
