Election (1999)

Film details


Satire. Dave Novotny, a mathematics teacher at a US high school, becomes romantically involved with a Grade A student, Tracy Flick, thereby ruining his career and personal life. The film takes a look back at how Novotny's friend and fellow teacher, Jim McAllister, loathed the goody-goody Tracy, who had decided to run for the presidency of the student body, much to Jim's annoyance; he decides to thwart her plans but slowly drifts off the path of righteousness himself.
