BAD EDUCATION (2020)
2020, HBO Films, 108 min, USA, Dir: Cory Finley

Inspired by the true story that rocked the town of Roslyn, NY in 2004 and garnered national attention, BAD EDUCATION centers on the stunning impact and aftermath of a multi-million-dollar embezzlement scheme. The darkly comical film focuses on Frank Tassone (Hugh Jackman) – both a passionate educator dedicated to seeing his students succeed, and an expert manipulator willing to steal from the very same people he was so eager to help. Allison Janney costars as Pam Gluckin, Dr. Tassone’s major domo and right-hand, the business manager for the Roslyn school district who worked her way up through sheer grit and passion. Intelligently written and tautly directed, the film highlights both the deficiencies of the public education system in the U.S. and the broader forces that foster greed, corruption and lack of accountability in our institutions.
