The Candidate
Superstar Robert Redford stars as a young, aggressive lawyer seduced into a political race against a well-respected incumbent Senator. Trying to do his own thing, he finds it difficult to call his own shots in the face of party efforts to mold him into a winner. Academy Award-winner for Best Screenplay and featuring strong performances by Peter Boyle and Melvyn Douglas. "The best political film ever," praises the National Observer, while Rex Reed declares it "like a string of Fourth of July firecrackers, exploding in joy....It is clever and riveting and honest."
