The American President is a 1995 romantic comedy-drama film directed by Rob Reiner and written by Aaron Sorkin. It stars Michael Douglas, Annette Bening, Martin Sheen, Michael J. Fox and Richard Dreyfuss.

Boy meets girl—and the press tracks their every move, rivals fire broadsides and a Presidency with a 63% popularity rating plunges to 41% in seven weeks. When you’re the President, everyone knows where you live. Michael Douglas portrays the widower Chief Executive who falls for a lobbyist (Anne Benning), then freefalls in the polls in this winning romantic comedy directed by Rob Reiner. Bustling staff members (Martin Sheen, Michael J. Fox), a sneering opponent, state dinners, formal protocol, informal moments, global crises—all come into focus as Reiner and his stars explore the balance between private romance and public presidency.

In English, with English subtitles, 114 minutes.
