Actor: Reese Witherspoon



“Some people say I’m an overachiever, but I think they’re just jealous.”

Alexander Payne‘s darkly satirical 1999 coming-of-age comedy about an ambitious, over-achieving young woman who wants nothing more but to be her high school’s President (in spite of some, um, scandals) and the teacher who will stop at nothing to make sure she doesn’t is beyond ripe for play on the big screen. Even better? We’re double-billing ELECTION with IDIOCRACY on November 1, so you can get a double dose of politically prophetic comedy in one night! See one, or see ’em both.

Jim McAllister (Matthew Broderick), a well-liked high school government teacher, can’t help but notice that successful student Tracy Flick (Reese Witherspoon) uses less than ethical tactics to get what she wants. When Tracy runs for school president, Jim feels that she will be a poor influence on the student body and convinces Paul, a dim-witted but popular student athlete, to run against Tracy. When she becomes aware of Jim’s secret involvement in the race, a bitter feud is sparked.

“Smart is not a word you’d use to describe most of the high school flicks now cluttering the multiplex. Election is a refreshing change.” (Rolling Stone)

“An instant classic, Alexander Payne’s 1999 high school comedy seems even more scathing now that we’re losing control of our own election machinery.” (Chicago Reader)

“A dark, insidiously funny satire on the self-involved ways otherwise rational people can allow narrow personal agendas to lead them astray to the point of self-destruction.” (Variety)

ELECTION (Alexander Payne, 1999 / 103 mins / 18A ) In this satiric comedy, Jim McAllister is a popular and well-respected instructor at George Washington Carver High School in Omaha, Nebraska, but lately he’s been unhappy in both his personal and professional life. His anxieties finally come to a head as a result of the school’s student elections.
