Bad Education

Bad Education ★★★★½

Cory Finley is becoming one of my favorite new directors. This film is a worthy follow up to his masterpiece debut, Thoroughbreds. There are some fantastic performances, brilliant social commentary and a profound sense of timing and emotion on Finley’s part. Plus Hugh Jackman kills it as the main character.

Relative to Thoroughbreds, the only real shortcoming of this film was the monumental task of following so many different characters through this story. Sometimes it felt like we were only getting half of the story around the supporting players.

this is a must see film in quarantine and If you went to a public school in America, it’s all the more resonant.
