>ELECTION We adore this movie. In tracking a high school student council race, it is savagely funny while also managing to say something profound about its lead characters’ capacity for self-deception. Matthew Broderick and Reese Witherspoon star. (R)


Here’s another teen-young adult movie that transcends age boundaries. The hyperactive Go offers a fun—if ultimately meaningless—whirligig of a ride while following interconnected characters over the course of a single frantic night. (R)

GET REAL In this charming and touching British drama, coming-of-age woes are compounded by the stress of coming out of the closet. Ben Silverstone winningly plays the movie’s teen hero, and Brad Gorton is the confused gay object of his affection. (R)
