“The Candidate” to screen at Ilsley

MIDDLEBURY — With elections fresh in our minds from Town Meeting Day, the Middlebury Community Classic Film Club will host its second film in the spring series on Tuesday, March 10. “The Candidate” (1972) will screen at 6 p.m. in the Isley Library’s Community Meeting Room.
What happens when an idealistic candidate for the U.S. Senate faces the real pressures of our commercializing political system? Will he become just another product to be branded, merchandized and sold? While this film (featuring Robert Redford, Peter Boyle, and Melvyn Douglas) was made almost 40 years ago its themes are uncomfortably relevant in our own time.
Come for great film and conversation. Free and open to all.
