This Month’s Highlight

Election

Alexander Payne’s 1999 satire is just as biting and brilliant as it was two decades. Anchored by a fantastic performance by Reese Witherspoon (arguably still her career-best), Payne’s adaptation of the Tom Perrotta novel uses a contentious high-school election to expose the thin line that separates adults from teenagers when it comes to maturity and what we consider good behavior. It’s hysterical, smart, and insightful in ways that we don’t see that often in modern cinema.
