Best movie for blue state audiences "The Candidate." Screenwriter Jeremy Larner won an Oscar for his perceptive 1972 political satire starring Robert Redford as Bill McKay, a young, environmentally conscious Senate candidate who begins to compromise his ideals in order to win the election. Directed by Michael Ritchie. Also worth a spot on your Netflix queue: Ivan Reitman's 1993 "Dave."
