THE CONGRESSMAN is a film that understands the politics that's dominated 2016 all too well. Treat Williams (HAIR, PRINCE OF THE CITY) headlines a stellar cast as Maine Congressman Charlie Winship, who's having a bad day. After being caught on video and reciting the pledge of allegiance, he knocks out another House member, confronts his angry ex-wife, and faces denunciation by the media for attacking one of the most cherished patriotic symbols in America. As his life spirals out of control, Charlie embarks on a journey to the remote Maine island whose eccentric inhabitants are in the middle of a shooting war in defense of their fishing grounds. Here is a home-grown yet world class, humorous and moving film with the smell of the Maine coast that raises the important question of what it means to be an American.
