Dir. Alexander Payne. 1999, 103 mins. With Matthew Broderick, Reese Witherspoon. American high school and American politics are the targets of Payne’s sharp satire. Reese Witherspoon plays the pathologically overachieving Tracy Flick, who is on her way to winning an uncontested election for student council president until her civics teacher decides that she should fail, at least once in her life.
