ELECTION (20TH ANNIVERSARY SCREENING)

SWIFF 5 PRESENTS ELECTION (20TH ANNIVERSARY SCREENING)

Election: 20th Anniversary Screening - Director: Alexander Payne, Cast: Reese Witherspoon, Matthew Broderick, Country: USA, 2019, 14A ,Language: English. Runtime: 103min
 
When does a comedy become timeless? The greatness of Alexander Payne's Academy-Award nominated classic, Election is that it's so irreducible. Almost every laugh is the sum total of composition, editing, performance, writing, music. Where so many other celebrated comedies over the years have marked the emergence of some great performer or the comedic awakening of a particular generation, Election just feels beautifully designed, everything in it working just so.

Leady by hilarious nuanced performances from Witherspoon and Broderick, Election's characters have a keen sense of morality and is only funnier for it.  You don’t get the sense that it couldn’t exist today or that the jokes couldn’t be done, only that jokes today mostly lack Election‘s nuance and panache. Movies as thoughtful as Election are a rare commodity in any era. All of its characters are so flawed and so relatable, and they come together in ways that feel novel yet deeply true.
