On this month's KMUW Movie Club, it's all about classroom shenanigans and hittin' the road.
For some reason, I have this thing for unlikable characters. I find enjoyment out of pushing myself far enough to empathize with them. The more unlikable, the better. "Election," and by extension, most of Alexander Payne's films, has characters that fit this bill. Tracy Flick and Mr. McAlister are the types of people you would never want to meet in real life, but they do exist, and they are closer to you than you think.
