Character actor Michael Shannon has been nominated for his second Oscar for his role in the 2016 thriller Nocturnal Animals. "No Small Parts" takes a look at some of the other characters he's played in the past.
Schooled is a great film because of its look at how we treat young people in this country. It addresses our fundamentally flawed public school system and shows a real-life alternative that is working for lots of free kids. Go see it and get schooled yourself.
As far as the film as entertainment, it's not perfect. The storyline is a little confusing. I'm still not sure about some of the key points of the teacher's life and sometimes I couldn't tell if we were flashing back. That having been said, there are some really phenomenal scenes in this movie. The acting (especially the supporting cast) was truly superb at times. And after all, the basic storyline is fresh, which is entertaining in itself.
