Good story about abuse of power...
3 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Michael Gross is believable as the principal who sexually abuses students, and feels he is entitled to get away with this behaviour.

Stepfanie Kramer is the teacher who fights the apathetic system, with social workers who refuse to take on members of the community with power. There is also an early role with a young Molly Parker as another of Gross' victims.

While there are many clichés (the one abused student, working in a strip bar); the basic story is interesting, and Gross does very well as a menacing figure, abusing his power. This was also based on a true story, so it is all the more relevant. 7/10
