I loved this film. There were only about 20 of us in the theater, but the laughter was that of a thousand. The actual performance of the play at the end was worth the wait.

You have a failed actor trying to teach drama in a bankrupt school district. He is guided by a kid critic who seems to know more about art than most critics. The parents try to shut down the play, but it goes on when the students find a venue for the performance. The actual play was great.

The story is simple, what if Hamlet and the cast of characters all had received therapy? How would things have different? It is a very interesting spin on forgiveness.
