This Oscar-nominated drama from director Laurent Cantet (Human Resources, Time Out) is based on the book by teacher/novelist François Bégaudeau. It stars--well, what do you know--François Bégaudeau as pretty much himself, a high school teacher in a tough Parisian neighborhood. Unlike the formulaic uplift of films like Mr. Holland's Opus, this semi-improvised, documentary-like film offers few easy solutions to the problems of modern education. 128 minutes PG-13.
Times and listings are for Friday 10/20 through Thursday 10/26
