A hard-fought primary, televised debates, pundits pontificating, and newspaper editors arguing over their endorsement - smells like a presidential campaign.
And smells like teen spirit, too. (Sorry, Kurt.)
In Caroline Suh's funny, fascinating documentary Frontrunners, students at New York City's super-competitive Stuyvesant High School face off in a not-exactly-vicious run for president and vice president of the student body. (Full disclosure: This writer is a long-ago Stuyvesant alumnus.)
Sure, it's just high school, and cynics in the halls opine that the candidates - eccentric brainiac George Zisiadis and actress/cheerleader Hannah Freiman at the top of the list - are mainly running because it will look good on their college applications.
