40TH ANNIVERSARY SCREENING
Chauncey Gardiner tends to the greenhouses of a beloved and wealthy man in Washington, D.C. Never given any sort of education, and learning all he knows from TV, Chauncey lives a life free from chaos... until his benefactor dies, and he is on the street. Out for just a short while, he is injured by the limousine of Ben and Eve Rand, a Washington fixer and his trophy wife. Taking him in, both are struck by Chance the Gardner (as he is now named) and his pearls of wisdom, which are merely Chance's gardening tips and tidbits he learned from the boob tube. Soon, Chance is considered to be a rising star, and perhaps... the next president? You could do worse.
