Vision Films is set to release political satire “The Congressman” to all major VOD platforms on Tuesday June 21st 2016, following a successful theatrical release across the country throughout April and May. In partnership with Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, Vision Films will release the DVD in fall.
Written and directed by former Long Island Congressman Robert J. Mrazek, “The Congressman” stars Treat Williams, George Hamilton, Elizabeth Marvel and Ryan Merriman. The film follows Charlie Winship (Treat Williams), a seasoned Maine Congressman who has grown disillusioned with political infighting and special interest lobbyists. When a video of him failing to rise during the pledge of allegiance goes viral, he finds himself entrenched in a public firestorm.
In addition to the media backlash, Charlie must contend with a conniving lobbyist determined to ruin his career (George Hamilton) and an advisor with a hidden political agenda (Ryan Merriman). Despite everything, Charlie agrees to help protect a small coastal village in his district of Maine from a powerful fishing conglomerate—all the while growing closer to the town’s librarian (Elizabeth Marvel). As Charlie experiences this passionate and idyllic view of the American dream, he must decide how far he’s willing to go to resuscitate his career and fight the special interest groups in Washington, DC.
