The Candidate (1972) Directed by Michael Ritchie

Doors 7:00 PM / Start 7:30 PM @ The Mini - 1329 Main St.

Arguably the greatest political picture in American history (though 1957’s A Face in the Crowd and 1976’s All the President’s Men might well jostle for the gold). It tells the story of an idealistic young lawyer and son of a former governor, Bill McKay (Robert Redford), who agrees to run for the U.S. Senate, on the condition that he can maintain his liberal beliefs and will never have to censor what he says. Inevitably, as he becomes more polished, he becomes less true to himself. - The Hollywood Reporter (110 min)
