The Historic Film Club will screen political romance “The American President” at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 28. The screening is free and open to the public.

The popular widower President Sheppard (Michael Douglas) is attempting to pass a difficult crime bill, so the last thing he needs is a romantic relationship, with a lobbyist no less. But although things start professional with Sydney Ellen Wade (Annette Bening), it is very apparent that the two are quickly falling for one another. Until, that is, the president is forced to make a difficult decision: pass his bill, or keep the woman he loves. Rob Reiner’s direction and Aaron Sorkin’s tight script benefit tremendously from an ensemble cast that also includes Michael J. Fox, Martin Sheen and Richard Dreyfuss.

Written by Sorkin, “The American President” is reminiscent of another Sorkin project, television show “The West Wing.” In fact, Sorkin developed ideas for the show while writing the screenplay for the film, using many ideas, subplots and characters that ultimately did not make it into the final cut of “The American President.”

There is no charge for the screening, but donations will be accepted to help defray the cost of acquiring and showing the film. The movie and popcorn are free; wine, beer, pop and water will be for sale. Seating is provided, but film fans can bring their own floor pillows, portable chairs, or whatever is comfortable for viewing the film.

The Museum at Central School is located at 124 Second Ave. E., Kalispell.
