Director: Alexander Payne

103 mins, 1999, USA, Digital

This film screened on Tuesday 14th November 2017.

With commentary by Gerard Stembridge.

Writer, director and author Gerard Stembridge aimed his merciless pen at public figures in the famed 1980s Scrap Saturday, with co-creator Dermot Morgan.

Here he will celebrate one of his favourites: Alexander Payne’s scathing satire on the US election system, manifested in a high school election being commandeered by scheming teen Tracy Flick, brilliantly played by Reese Witherspoon.

This screening is part of the IFI Evening Course Comic Cuts which runs from October 10th to November 14th 2017.
