I like this movie!
I went to an early screening of this movie and I really liked it!Although the film could do with a little editing- it was an early cut Ibelieve- the first time director got some great performances from histalented mostly no name cast. It's one of those films that has some lowbudget problems but the film's heart is so in the right place youeasily over look them... the two leads were very good as well as astand out performance from Julie Bowen as a mean ambitious principal...overall a really great first effort by all. The story, based on reallife incidents, takes place at high school where the aforementionedJulie Bowen resides as principal. She is running for state schoolsuperintendent and has begun a crack down on her students- her policy-much like a high school version of the Patriot Act- inspires a numberof students to rise up and protest in very creative ways. This filmhopefully will be an inspiration to many. Wait till the very endcredits to see some very interesting documentary interviews with thereal students the film was based on. Really hope this one gets adistributer. Certainly seems like an easy fit for an MTV youth typeaudience.
