Elle Woods is just “too blonde” for her East Coast, blue-blood boyfriend…who dumps her, reunites with his brainy prep school ex, and heads to Harvard Law School.

1999. USA. Dir: Alexander Payne. With Matthew Broderick, Reese Witherspoon. 102 min. 35mm print.
The search for a new class president takes on all the desperation and intrigue of an actual election cycle when a popular teacher meddles with an overachiever determined to win. As the vote draws nearer and personal lives begin to unravel, Payne’s pitch-black comedy paints a perfect picture of political pettiness.
