Podcast Episode 58: Isy Santini On Alexander Payne’s ELECTION

Alexander Payne’s 1999 release Election was a film which took the filmmaker’s career to the next level. A biting satire, it features a great Matthew Broderick as a teacher with a grudge battling Reese Witherspoon‘s overly enthusiastic student, Tracy Flick.

As part of a special look back at some of the films released in 1999 – a year many believe to be one of the finest in cinema history – film critic and entertainment journalist Isy Santini joined the Movies In Focus podcast to talk about Election.

With bylines in The List, Film Stories, and Dirty Movies, Isy is a writer with a passion for feminist film analysis and 20th century cinema – which made her the ideal candidate to talk about Alexander Payne’s well regarded black comedy.
