The Candidate is a 1972 American film starring Robert Redford. Bill McKay (Robert Redford), California Democratic candidate for U.S. Senator, a man of integrity and ideals, will now let the great American political machine manipulate him. Because now he’s got to win.

The Candidate, directed by Michael Ritchie from an on-target Academy Award — winning Best Original Screenplay (1972) by Jeremy Larner, is all about the packaging of today’s office-seeker. Still timely, it´s a sharp insider´s view of how admen, press agents, pollsters and media czars converge on election campaigns. Peter Boyle, Melvyn Douglas and Don Porter co-star in one of the wittiest political movies ever made.

Screening in English with English subtitles.
