Cast your vote for this savage dark comedy battle of wills from the eternally witty Alexander Payne. Tracy Flick (Reese Witherspoon) is running unopposed for this year’s high school student election. But her government teacher Jim McAllister (Matthew Broderick) has a different plan. Jim talks popular football player Paul Metzler to run against Tracy, partially to establish a more democratic election, and partially to satisfy his own simmering personal resentments against the teenage “Karen”. But Tracy is not going down without a fight. Election day has never been this scathingly funny!
