I saw this film a couple of weeks ago. It's absolutely fantastic.
I loved the normality of it, not just in the acting, which was brilliant, but the pace and tempo as well. It's really like being a fly on the wall.
The dialogue, intentionally sparse and banal, allows the viewer to form their own image of the school and it's community.. nothing is forced.
Also John Robinson, who played the blonde lead character John McFarland, gave a particularly good performance in my view, and I'd expect so see a lot
more of him in the future. He's got a hint of Keanu Reeves/River Phoenix about him.
