Finally, a movie about counting ballots.

Remember back when votes in Florida were actually counted, and they actually swayed a national election?

If not, don’t fret – HBO has made a TV movie about the Golden State’s role in the 2000 election, when the final numbers took weeks to determine based on a flawed voting system. If the word “hanging chad” rings any bells, yes, that’s what this movie is about.

“Recount” doesn’t hit the little screen until May 28th, but they’re raffling off free tickets in assorted US cities for advanced screenings. Sure, its no “The Dark Knight” or “Indiana Jones and the Jumping of the Sequel Shark,” but it sure beats “Sex and the City,” the motion picture (which, ironically, is also from HBO).

The film stars Kevin Spacey, Bob Balaban, Ed Begley, Jr., Laura Dern, John Hurt, Denis Leary, Bruce McGill, and Tom Wilkinson, all names that I bring up simply to draw in the search engines (hi Google!).

Anyway, if you live in Los Angeles or San Francisco (or in a handful of other US cities) click here to enter for passes.
