Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (Capra)

A film in the spotlight

Mr. Smith Goes to Washington | Frank Capra

Film class by Olivier Lecomte (FR)

Mr. Smith Goes to Washington is an all-out demonstration of Frank Capra’s genius for thought-provoking comedy, in this case an exploration of the inner workings of American democracy. It was also a sharp rebuke to his detractors. Olivier Lecomte shows us what makes this jubilant movie tick.
