Telekinetic for Sure
19 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is relatively entertaining. A teacher in a one-room school must face each day, facing off with a trio of naughty children with telekinetic powers. They make coal jump out of a bucket, a map fall on her head, spin a globe, etc. When a friend, a researcher shows up, things get even uglier. The story has more to do with the fear of outsiders who may treat the kids as though they were scientific guinea pigs. A major event decides the issue but as far as anything scientific going on, it is missing here. I suppose the kids of the 1950's got a real kick out of seeing the teacher get hers, but this is actually a more sensitive and probing view of humanity. Plus, there were no Cold War militants involved.
