Director: Hal Ashby
Set in 1968 on Election Day in Los Angeles, an American satirical comedy-drama film. The political atmosphere provides a source of dramatic irony, since the audience, but not the characters, are aware of the direction the Nixon presidency would eventually take. However, the main theme is not presidential politics, but sexual politics; the film is renowned for its sharp satire of late-1960s sexual and social mores.
