HBO has released the trailer, images and press release for the upcoming film Bad Education and we’re all…
Miss Press Release didn’t make it sound particularly original, though:
Inspired by the true story that rocked the town of Roslyn, NY in 2004 that garnered attention nationwide, BAD EDUCATION, debuting SATURDAY, APRIL 25 (8:00-9:30 p.m. ET/PT), centers on the stunning impact and aftermath of a multi-million-dollar embezzlement scheme. The darkly comical film highlights the deficiencies of the public education system in the U.S. while examining the broader forces that foster greed, corruption, and lack of accountability in our institutions.
Starring Academy Award nominated and Golden Globe and Tony Award winner Hugh Jackman (“The Greatest Showman,” “Les Misérables”); and Emmy®, Academy Award, Golden Globe and SAG Award winner Allison Janney (“I, Tonya,” “Mom”); the film is directed by Cory Finley (“Thoroughbreds”) and written by Mike Makowsky (“I Think We’re Alone Now”).
The film will also be available on HBO On Demand, HBO NOW, HBO GO and partners’ streaming platforms.
We don’t know how much we’re in the mood for a darkly comic look at corruption, but we’ll watch just about anything at the moment. And if you’re giving us a serving of Allison Janney, then we can’t find a good reason NOT to check it out. Besides, it really does look like some of Jackman’s best work. We’d never have predicted that these two would have chemistry. Then again, Janney has chemistry with just about everybody.
We’ll check it out. How about you?
