Slightly offbeat but good watch
10 February 2016 | by riporeillySee all my reviews

This was an interesting movie, I have no idea if it's based on any real circumstances but it's an overall good watch. Not for children,... but if you want something that will keep your interest this is for you. Not a violent movie, very believable characters and well written on a somewhat overlooked subject, (History for crying out loud! The Main character is new to the school he's teaching at.) It does a good job of showing what the state of education sadly has become, ...A business! No longer concerned with actually educating students the education system is only trying to make money! I will certainly watch this movie multiple times. Aided by the main actor, Miles Doleac's personal history (Including a PhD!) His portrayal is spot on. This movie has sparked my desire to watch MORE independent films. It made me wonder what I've been missing by not going off the mainstream.
