Cannes 2012: The We and the I – review

Michel Gondry's signature playfulness keeps an otherwise stifling schoolbus journey through the Bronx entertaining

The backseat is the throne of the schoolbus, where bullies and the popular preside over the meek – or at least anyone who dares sport the wrong attitude, hair, or mobile phone.
