Sometimes horrifying and often hilarious, A PERFECT CANDIDATE is a twisted journey into the underbelly of American politics. In 1994 former Marine Oliver North re-emerged from the Iran-Contra scandal to run for the U.S Senate. In the hotly contested race between North and incumbent Chuck Robb, (who played Charlie Brown to Ollie's Elvis) filmmakers R.J. Cutler and David Van Taylor were granted astonishing access to the back room games played by the candidates, their handlers and the press. The result is a revealing, chilling and darkly funny look into the modern American political process.
