Culture Maven review: "Bad Education"
Film review and podcast by c d kaplan
When somebody comes at you with a sincerely positive review of a movie about real life embezzlement by high school administrators, what’s your first thought?
Probably not, “Oh my, I really really really can’t wait to watch that . . . not!”
I understand. But here’s the deal.
The movie based on a true story starring Hugh Jackman and Allison Janney is way more interesting and engaging than I figured it would be.
The two showcase their considerable acting chops, making these two less than admirable educators somewhat likable and nuanced.
