On Sunday 12 May at 12:30PM, the Reel McCoy Film Group will screen the 1999 film, “The Election”. Reese Witherspoon, in a breakthrough starring role, plays a peppy schoolgirl obsessed with winning the presidency of her high school’s student council. Her civics teacher is appalled at her naked ambition and the inevitability of her success as the sole candidate. He attempts to manipulate the process while his private life becomes unhinged. The film was unsuccessful on release but has since become a cult classic.
