Movie Info

A politically savvy 15-year-old learns the true nature of politics after accepting the position of youth campaign spokesman for a determined congressman in the feature directorial debut of 20-year-old actor-turned-director Luke Eberl. When Congressman Lawrence Connor (Steven Weber) speaks before an assembly of high-school students during his run for the Senate, the enthusiastic and well-informed response that he gets from 15-year-old student Owen (Alex D. Linz) results in an invitation to join the campaign as Connor's youth spokesman. Subsequently exploited in a tireless campaign that includes television commercials, posters, radio advertisements, and speaking engagements, Owen is prompted by his growing distaste for the cut-throat world of politics to reconsider his career or risk losing his innocence.

Critic Reviews for Choose Connor

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (7)

It's a film that works through guilelessness and cynicism.

October 31, 2008 | Full Review…

Luke Eberl's Choose Connor is a real stunner, an unusual coming-of-age story that packs a wallop in unexpected ways.

October 17, 2008 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Whether or not one buys into pic's vision of government as irreversibly corrupt, the leap from the general to the specific registers as unconvincing at best.

October 16, 2008 | Full Review…

Overlong, obvious and indifferently acted.

October 10, 2008 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Choose Connor, a jaundiced look at political power and moral turpitude, draws you in by creeping you out.

October 10, 2008 | Rating: 3/5

For reasons that are unclear, Choose Connor seems to both court relevance and avoid it, lapsing into allegory at inopportune moments.
