A fantastic movie for anyone who loves theater, film, acting - or was in the high school drama club
24 February 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My quick one-line review: Stop and watch this film now! To expand: This is required viewing for anyone who was in a school play, loves Shakespeare, or just likes a good film. It took me back to the craziness of the high school drama club. It's so much fun to watch. Let's start with the fantastic acting. Broadway stars, young newcomers

  • it's a perfect cast. The writing is also very good with a story that


keeps you engaged and entertained. What I really like about this film is that it touches on so many subjects without spreading itself too thin. Honestly, it was a lovely 90 minutes of watching a film that I could watch again and again.
