The Candidate

The Candidate (aka The Realm) is an award-winning Spanish nail-biter from the producers of The Secret in their Eyes and Dogman.

Manuel (Antonio de la Torre), an influential regional politician whose high-class lifestyle is based on nefarious and illegal business, had everything in his favour to take the leap into national politics. However, as a leak involving him in a corruption scandal threatens to break his entire party, he becomes trapped in a struggle for survival.

It’s House of Cards meets Michael Clayton in this exciting, fast-paced political thriller. “Acclaim should carry it far among those craving intrigue, suspense and muckraking social commentary.” VARIETY
