We know that most of you are probably anxiously awaiting Game of Thrones’ return on April 24th. But why not give an HBO original film a chance while you wait? Confirmation is hitting the air in about the timeliest way possible. With a real life confirmation battle raging in the real life Washington DC, we’re going to get an inside look at what went down with Clarence Thomas’ “confirmation” years back.
Confirmation debuts SATURDAY, APRIL 16 at 8:00 p.m. (ET/PT), exclusively on HBO.
Here’s how HBO describes the piece:
HBO Films’ CONFIRMATION stars Kerry Washington (Emmy® and Golden Globe nominee for “Scandal”; “Django Unchained,” “Ray”), Wendell Pierce (HBO’s “Treme” and “The Wire”), Greg Kinnear (Oscar® and Golden Globe nominee for “As Good as It Gets”; “Little Miss Sunshine”), Jeffrey Wright (Emmy® and Golden Globe winner for HBO’s “Angels in America”; HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire”), Eric Stonestreet (Emmy® winner for “Modern Family”) and Jennifer Hudson (Oscar®winner for “Dreamgirls”). Written by Susannah Grant (Oscar® nominee for “Erin Brockovich”) and directed by Rick Famuyiwa (“Dope,” “The Wood”), the film details the explosive 1991 Clarence Thomas Supreme Court nomination hearings, which brought the country to a standstill and forever changed the way we think about sexual harassment, victims’ rights and modern-day race relations.
And here’s the latest trailer for the movie:
Watch Confirmation Online or Streaming for Free with an HBO Subscription
Many HBOWatchers have already “cut the cord” meaning they don’t have a traditional cable package anymore. That’s fine, you can stream Confirmation one of several ways.
- Subscribe to HBO Now or use the free trial to watch Confirmation online
- Subscribe to Sling and add HBO to your package
- Download the full movie on Amazon once it is released (several months later usually)
- Hide in the bushes and watch through the windows of your neighbor’s house (no, don’t do that please)
- Use your grandparents cable login to get HBO Go (we won’t tell and you should really just subscribe yourself!)
Of course you can always watch Confirmation offline the old fashioned way but the above gives you a few options to watch it online for free with a subscription to HBO.
