Critic's Pick

'Running Mates'

October 09, 1994|Kevin Thomas

In this light, blithe '92 made-for-cable romantic comedy, a presidential candidate's fiancee becomes the source of scandal just as he's entering the home stretch of an effective campaign. With Diane Keaton as the fiancee and Ed Harris as the senator who would appear to have the White House within his grasp, the film sparkles like a Tracy-Hepburn picture. Director Michael Lindsay-Hogg and writer A.L. Appling deftly show, through the conflicting ideas of how a First Lady should behave, the larger issue of the evolving role of women in American society (HBO Monday at 2 p.m., Friday at 11 a.m.).
