Works great on its own, but is almost identical to the scene in the feature
6 April 2015 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

If you are curious if you should watch this before or after watching the feature length version: Either works.

This is (almost) a scene taken straight from the movie, and it's a compliment to the movie that it works so well by itself. This scene was one of my favorites in the movie (though there were many other good ones), and it works great as an introduction to the culture that Andrew (the main character) is getting into. It is also an introduction to Fletcher, the character played by Simmons - and by seeing this all alone you miss the build up that you find in the feature film. But the reverence the students have for him is still obvious from the get go.
