Hidden Gems: Election
With Reese Witherspoon, Matthew Broderick and Chris Klein.
Quite simply, this movie is awesome. Matthew Broderick stars as a high school teacher who is desperate to stop Reese Witherspoon from winning the election for student council president. Reese is the resident class know-it-all and Broderick hates her for having an affair with one of his colleagues, resulting in his firing. Election is one of the funniest and most realistic portrayals of high school life I have ever seen. Above all, it is proof that we never really escape the lives we lived during those four dreadful years… no matter how hard we try to move on.
