It’s a political sort of day on this side of the pond. People are coming out in droves to exercise their right to vote. News stations will discussing little else and there is no doubt that by the end of the night everyone will have heard the phrase “too close to call” more than they can stand.
So, if you need a slight break from watching the news at the polls, here are five movies that will give you a little time away, while keeping with the general patriotic spirit of the day.
1. Mr. Smith Goes to Washington
5. Napoleon Dynamite
And, you know, you can always keep your computer nearby if you want to sneak a quick peek at the news.
