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.
