He makes the decision to seek election to the U.S. Senate against a well entrenched incumbent.
His deal is he can say any outrageous thing because he cannot win anyway, and in so doing shows he has the brains.
Made up for by the brilliance of the progression of the central theme through a loosely 70s-style plot.
Fine film - great performance from Redford and Boyle, and a script with a few surprises. Has aged pretty well.Published 2 months ago by Thomas Whelan

Explains in period detail a campaign which could be as concise today. Read more
