The Congressman

Treat Williams (Prince of the City, The Substitute 2: School's Out, "Everwood," ) stars in this timely political dramedy as a newly divorced Maine Congressman whose public life spirals out of control after he's caught on camera failing to stand and recite the Pledge of Allegiance. With the press breathing down his neck, he retreats to a remote island in the Atlantic, whose eccentric inhabitants are stuck in the middle of a shooting war over fishing grounds. It's no Local Hero, but it's earnest. Filmmaker Robert J. Mrazek is a former legislator himself. 98 minutes R.
