Founded as it was, in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks, political currents have always flowed through the Tribeca Film Festival. This year, the festival has a slightly pugnacious edge to counter the policies of its midtown neighbor, President Donald Trump. Tribeca co-founder Robert De Niro has repeatedly said, after all, he'd like to punch Trump in the face.Trump's 100th day in office will fall during the New York festival, which opened Wednesday with a Clive Davis documentary, "Soundtrack of Our Lives," and star-studded concert tribute to the legendary music producer. Now in its 16th year, Tribeca is the first big film festival to be programmed and substantially oriented in the political climate since last November's election.Tribeca's 12-daylong event is a particularly eclectic festival that encompasses celebrity talks (Springsteen and Hanks), television premieres (this year Hulu's anticipated "The Handmaid's Tale" will debut), an ever-expanding virtual reality component and several movie anniversary celebrations.Reagan, who is seen in the film wondering how previous presidents managed without prior acting experience, is a clearly more polished performer.
