Two males and a female vie for office, indulging in low blows and spin, character assassination and gestures of goodwill, all the while gauging their standing with voters. The setting is not the Democratic presidential campaign trail but a third-grade class at an elementary school in the city of Wuhan in central China. Please Vote for Me, which made the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' documentary feature shortlist, packs its fleet hour with keen observations. Chronicling a public school's first open elections - at stake is the position of class monitor - filmmaker Weijun Chen has crafted a witty, engaging macro-lens view of human nature, China's one-child policy and the democratic electoral process as the ultimate exercise in marketing. (Excerpted from Sheri Linden's review in The Hollywood Reporter)
