A movie that speaks even for today
17 April 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I'm quite shocked at the low ratings this film receives. Even my satellite provider only gave it 1 star out of 4.

It's entertaining enough, keeping the audience's attention for the duration of the film, which is more than can be said for most film I've seen.

Further, the issues it discusses (the scientific pursuit of knowledge, ignorant small town values, political corruption of the courts, parent-child conflict, and professors whose research is more of a way to party) are relevant today. Nobody comes out looking pure and innocent, which is often the mark of a good film.

The only thing that seems out of place is that college-age adults are considered "minors" which is absurd today.
