The Freshest Teen Movie For A Long Time
This film was a real gem. ITV showed it over the midnight hour and I think Election deserved a better time slot than this.
The film is told from several different points of view, so all viewers will enjoy watching it because they will like one of the intertwined story lines, in my opinion.
Matthew Broderick is excellent as the helpful teacher, as is Reese Witherspoon as the overambitious high school girl with a mean streak. Election contains a good mix of drama and comedy, especially some of the end scenes which almost remind me of the last scene in The Butterfly Effect. However, it doesn't linger on the drama for too long in the final scenes, which is a good thing as it left me with a smile on my face after having seen the film.
Overall, an excellent "teen" comedy which I highly recommend, if only for the sort-of feel-good ending.
