Starring: Adrien Brody
Tony Kaye turns his jaded eye over education in America. Narry Borman was once a teacher, but he had to quit cos the kids bullied him. That also happens to Adrien Brody, but he deals with it properly: By looking after a street worker in a totally non-sexual way. Detachment avoids a lot of the cliches of films about schools. There's very little 'inspirational talk'... it's more about the grim reality of getting on with it, which has good and bad outcomes in this messed up world.
