Robert Redford lives up to his 'golden boy' reputation in this whip-smart political drama. He plays an idealistic young politician who refuses to compromise his ideals for the sake of power. Or at least he does to begin with... Redford oozes charisma and seasoned campaigners Melvyn Douglas and Peter Boyle back him all the way, abetted by Michael Ritchie's zippy direction and an Oscar-winning script that still packs a relevant punch. It deserves your vote.
