Watch the film any time before the discussion–or enjoy the discussion and be persuaded to view it after! A Long Island school superintendent and his assistant are credited with bringing the district unprecedented prestige. Frank is a master of positive messaging, whether before an audience of community leaders or in an office with a concerned student or parent. That changes when a student reporter uncovers an embezzlement scheme of epic proportions, prompting Frank to devise an elaborate cover-up. Anchored by an outstanding Hugh Jackman, Bad Education finds absurd laughs — and a worthy message — in the aftermath of a real-life scandal. Village members Mary Ann Schwartz and Dick Brewer will host a discussion of the film via Zoom this Saturday at 3:00 PM.
