Man of the Year
Titan Film Series Presents Man of the Year

January 17, 2007

BLOOMINGTON, Ill. - Illinois Wesleyan University will show the Universal Pictures film Man of the Year on Friday, Jan. 19 at 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. at the Hansen Student Center (300 Beecher St., Bloomington).  In the spirit of the movie, which follows a fictional presidential campaign, students can register to vote from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Sponsored by the Office of Student Activities, the event is free and open to the public.

Directed by Barry Levinson, Man of the Year stars Robin Williams as a wise-cracking late-night political talk show host who decides on a lark to run for President.  He runs a somewhat serious campaign designed to shake up the corrupt political system and wins.  The film, which is rated PG-13, also features actors Laura Linney, Jeff Goldblum and Lewis Black.
